When Gordon and Carmel buy a greystone in Chicago, it’s with the best of intentions: they plan to rent the building’s second apartment to a low-income black family, displacing Erik and Nora, their white tenants. But when Gordon realizes there’s more to Nora than meets the eye, he finds himself caught in the middle of a power struggle, calling into question what it means to do good.

Featuring Meghan Reardon as Nora from Season Seven 2014 production, along with Gregory Geffrard, Lanise Antoine Shelley and Rich Holton.

“a remarkable, slyly told meditation on gender and racial politics, and how genuinely hard it is to really make a difference.” — Jack Helbig, Chicago Reader
