Tensions rise as Eric and Raquel confront their own biases about masculinity and race when their young son plays with a doll...but nobody knows that the ghosts of history are watching and will protect the child at all costs. If homophobia wins the battle, who or what can win the war?

This production contains homophobic and explicit language, emotional and physical trauma, and the presence of a firearm. Simulated alcohol consumption and smoking of non-tobacco products will occur onstage.
