Playwrights Local proudly announces the return of Objectively/Reasonable, the critically acclaimed documentary play that premiered to sold-out houses in August 2016. Presented as a community response to the 2014 shooting of Tamir Rice, this powerful new work is based on original interviews with legal experts, social critics, police officers, parents, and other Greater Clevelanders. Featuring contributions from an ensemble of writers—Mike Geither, Tom Hayes, Lisa Langford, Michael Oatman, and David Todd—the play considers the impact and aftermath of this tragedy as captured through a diverse set of unheard voices. Objectively/Reasonable was conceived and edited by David Todd and is directed by Terrence Spivey, former artistic director of Karamu House.

Run Time: Approximately 90 minutes, without intermission.
