From Off-Broadway

Jay, an up and coming reporter at The New York Times has dreams of becoming a famous journalist. But in a flash, they come crashing down when he becomes the center of a plagarism scandal. Exciting young playwright, Gabe McKinley weaves a revealing and complex story about the collatoral damage of unchecked ambition and compounded lies. In this new play inspired by current events, truth becomes slippery and racial tensions reach a boiling point. 

"[McKinley] shows the newspaper world in an age of anxiety, struggling with new technology, shifting markets and conflicts between old and new media in a time of terrorism threats, wars and political upheaval." - New York Times

"
Like a good journalist, Mr. McKinley lays out those facts, adds color and provides an authoritative voice..." - New York Times

"Playwright Gabe McKinley, himself a former Times employee, touches on the many issues at play — cronyism, race, journalistic integrity — with popping, Aaron Sorkin-like dialogue" - Entertainment Weekly
