When a letter arrives from the mother they thought was dead, twenty-one-year-old twins Racine and Anaia travel from the Dirty South to the California desert, to a yellow house with teal shutters

They're on a mission to avenge her past, and they're ready to take down anyone who stands in their way

A revenge tale about two women seeking justice and taking control of their own narratives, Is God Is collides the ancient and the modern, the tragic and the Spaghetti Western, hip-hop and Afropunk

Aleshea Harris's play received its British premiere in the Jerwood Theatre Downstairs at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in September 2021, directed by Ola Ince

REVIEWS

"Excellent revenge fantasy … furious and incandescent" ~ Time Out New York

"A rich, funny, unnerving, exhilarating gold mine" ~ New York Magazine
