    Ready Steady Yeti Go by David Jacobi and Directed by Dan Granke
    2016 Relentless Award Semifinalist
    A National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere

    In the aftermath of a hate crime, Goon befriends Carly Uhlenbeek, the only black girl in school. Things start to go south when bad parental advice parental advice, passive-aggressive acts, and ill-formed gestures of kindness threaten to drown their relationship.

    “This play is hugely theatrical, downright hilarious, and has great compassion for all of its young characters. A brilliant satire examining the ways in which even the most well-intentioned folks working to stand up against racism can still perpetuate it.

    We thank you for your support!
