In the words of the playwright, "I create worlds where Black people fly, fail, jump over moons, and cry over heartbreaks. In my works, Black people fight oppression, fight mythical creatures, fight depression, fight witch’s curses, and fight political opponents. I make culturally specific entertainment about black people surviving and thriving worlds like ours and beyond."
