Simply put: In the 18th century, you could not call a man's horse "fat" and get away with it. Young Lucidus, however, wishes the opposite was true in The Coward. Hounded by his honor-obsessed father, Lucidus is pressured into dueling over the equine slight. Not cut out for such sordid stuff -- he's more into entomology and tea -- the young nobleman hires a common criminal to fight in his place ... only to have the scoundrel make a bloody mess of things. A series of duels follows and Lucidus, to his dismay, finds his "fearsome" reputation exceeding his wildest expectations. Though set in the 1790s (sort of), The Coward is a knockout new comedy from Nick Jones (currently a writer for Orange Is the New Black on Netflix). Now Vance Smith directs its Midwest premiere at Theater Wit. Learn More

A white girl should not be describing experiences of the black race as if they were her own experiences. She has no idea what it is to be black.
The piece would have been better if she had directed a black actress playing her part. I thought it would be more of a history of the music itself and thought there would be some standards sung.
