“A brilliantly imagined look at the impact of racial discord on Baldwin as he completes his second novel...In imagining the writer's inner turmoil, Gomez brings these issues into sharp focus...Finley has directed a gripping, emotionally resonant production, acted on a virtually bare stage—save for two chairs and one table—that presents Baldwin as humane, deeply introspective, and haunted by insecurities and legitimate worries.”
