The World Premiere of :

Clementine

by Cameron Roberts 

Directed by Matthew Martinez Hannon

Sam and Drei are two playwriting students at a prestigious university. After a year of not speaking to each other, they reconvene tonight for a dorm-cooked meal. Sam, a white man, has written a play about the experience of a black family with the hopes of being a more inclusive, intersectional, playwright. Since the university newspaper publicly criticized the play, Sam hopes that Drei can help him understand where he may have gone wrong. But Drei wants something else. As their desires clash, a secret from the past forces Sam and Drei to confront the realities of criticism, and the unknown future of their relationship.
