Editorial reviews

Martha's Vineyard lies a durable dramatic formula: a plot based on a secret that causes telling reversals. Two sons bring their girlfriends to the family home for a weekend, and the mix of race and class-consciousness lets loose submerged anger and secrets. Michole Briana White is wonderful as Taylor, one of the girlfriends and the most complex person in the play. She deftly conveys her character's eagerness, intelligence, lack of self-consciousness, and frustration. Justine Bateman also stands out as the other girlfriend - savvy, sexy, smart, and confident. Though the second half is less structured, the play has wonderfully alert dialogue, which makes it especially fun.

Publisher's summary

How well do you know your family? Your social class? Your race? Sensitive "Spoon" LeVay and his brother "Flip" see their weekend at the family home on Martha's Vineyard as a perfect opportunity to introduce their girlfriends to their upper class African American parents. Instead they stumble into a domestic powder keg that exposes secrets of prejudice, hypocrisy, and adultery. This fantastic new play comes from the pen of one of the country's most provocative new playwrights!

Loved It!

I absolutely loved it! I was listening to the audio recording while reading the book. It was an absolutely great experience. Audible needs to put more African American dramatized plays on their list!
