RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Off-Broadway

The Root, part thriller, part black comedy, is a gritty, urban story of one man’s redemption, albeit, at a steep price. At times horrifying, and at other times, hysterical, The Root is a captivating examination of greed, brutality, and the American dream.

"A smart, tightly written and thoroughly engrossing modern morality play." - Asbury Park Daily
