WHERE WE STAND

by Donnetta Lavinia Grays

“Where We Stand Reveals a Community on the Precipice of a Big Decision. With sensitivity and classically great storytelling skills, Grays asks us to reconsider our notions of justice and revenge, and the perilous chasm between them.” – TheaterMania
“A Pied Piper story that doubles as a boldfaced allegory about class and community,” – NY Times
“Magical! A charismatic feat! Point-of-the-spear relevance.” —New York Magazine
“Grays is an extraordinary storyteller! Unassumingly spectacular.” —Theatermania

In this epic fable, told with humor, poetry, and music, we are encouraged to decide, will the “man” who made a deal with the devil to make our community flourish be forgiven or will the “man” be condemned.
