Playwrights on Park presents.

In 1968, when Annie, a white college student goes to tutor Zafiya
at the juvenile detention center, neither woman realizes how important they
will turn out to be to each other. But as Annie goes from concerned do-gooder
to underground revolutionary, and Zafiya goes from incarcerated juvenile to
lesbian commune dweller, they wrestle with their memories of each other; of
Tyrone, Zafiya's Black Panther brother, killed by the Feds; and of Coreena,
Zafiya's daughter, taken from her at birth. A TO Z follows the journey of these
two women, from the murder of Fred Hampton to the election of Obama, and
through all the letters of the alphabet.
