Set in 1997, Shout is a seven-character play that explores the history of a family, and the many layers of meaning that comprises the concept of family. With its multi-ethnic characters, the play reflects the challenging and subtle ways in which the dynamics of age, race, and gender must be endured and carefully weighed in reconciling love.

“Shout certainly brings a tension and, at times, an ironic humor to the central conflict and builds slowly as the pressure mounts….Very smart writing fuels the argumentative discourse….Each character is skillfully given a specific voice about love, racism, interracial marriage and their views of the humanity of it all.”
—Ben Guillory, Producing Artistic Director, Robey Theatre Company, Los Angeles
