Interesting story, poetically written, and beautifully acted, especially by D'wayne Taylor; his performance was a revelation.

Description

Written by Cornelius Eady

Directed by Jason Beck

Brutal Imagination_, is a two-person play exploring the relationship between Susan Smith (a South Carolina mother who drowned her children 1994) and the imaginary black man who she invented as the murderer. It plumbs the power of imagination and the eye of the media-saturated world through starkly haunting stage poetry. _
