“Suzan-Lori Parks continues to take on weighty, thorny topics too seldom addressed in the theater these days… Elizabeth Marvel is one of our most intelligent and daring stage actresses… Mr. Macdonald brings his usual sensitivity and clarity to this production.” – Ben Brantley, The New York Times
“Fresh insights, startling images, fiery speeches, and moments of genuine passion. remind you that Parks is the real deal.” -Adam Green, VOGUE
“It’s good, visceral theater, with Parks’ intensity and edgy dialogue, the taut direction of James Macdonald and a strong cast making the 1-hour, 45-minute play engrossing.” – Robert Feldberg, Bergen Record
Treasured for her groundbreaking poetic and inventive language, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks (Topdog/Underdog) has drawn a family portrait shattered by issues of rage, revenge, power and betrayal. When a young man returns home to South Texas to confront his father, everyday life erupts into a battle for personal survival. At once fiercely intimate and explosive, THE BOOK OF GRACE weaves the story of three people bound together by love and longing, passion and ambition.
The Book of Grace contains adult content including, but not limited to, sexually explicit imagery.
