SEASON
Season 30

Chicago Premiere!

When twins Racine and Anaia receive a letter from the mother they thought was dead, they swear to avenge her — and themselves — with blood. Their epic “mission from God” spans from the Dirty South to the California desert, from hip-hop to Afropunk, from ancient tragedy to the Spaghetti Western. Winner of the 2016 Relentless Award and the 2018 Obie Award for Playwriting, Is God Is asks us to consider the roots, futility, and inevitability of cyclical violence, and to question ourselves for wallowing so happily in stories that traffic in it.
