About Is God Is

By Aleshea Harris

Co-Directed by Zindzi Okenyo & Shari Sebbens

Drawing on the ancient, the Spaghetti Western and Afropunk, Aleshea Harris’s Is God Is packs an almighty wallop. Winner of the Obie Award for Playwriting and the American Playwriting Foundation’s Relentless Award, it’s an electrifying breath of fresh air that examines the insidious, cyclical nature of violence through a contemporary tale as old as time.

Twin sisters Racine and Anaia bear the scars of their deadbeat dad’s long-ago brutal attack – an act of incendiary ruthlessness that left the girls’ mother dead. Or so the twins believe ... until they receive a letter, beckoning them to their mama’s bedside. Now that she is actually dying, she has but one task for her daughters – make your daddy dead.

Featuring Henrietta Amevor and Masego Pitso in its Australian premiere, Is God Is will be co-directed by Zindzi Okenyo (An Ideal Husband) and Shari Sebbens (The Sapphires), whose previous directorial collaboration, seven methods of killing kylie jenner, has been selling out seasons around the country. Bold, brash and darkly comic, Is God Is takes vengeance to levels that would make Greek tragedians proud.
