What Confederate Statues Commemorate

This is a truly riveting play, unique and constantly surprising. I've never heard anything quite like it, and will be thinking about it for a long time. Be cautious about listening while driving if you're squeamish, however; there are one or two very troubling scenes. The acting is excellent; the older man in particular is astonishingly good. Grade: A+
