A stunning collection of plays from Pulitzer Prize-winning
playwright Suzan-Lori Parks that captures the societal rupture of the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic.

On March 13, 2020, as theaters shut their doors and the world
went into lock-down, Suzan-Lori Parks picked up her pen and set out to write a
play every day. What emerged is a breathtaking chronicle of our collective
experience through-out the troubling days and nights that followed. Parks's
groundbreaking new work bears witness to what we've experienced and offers
inspiration as we look ahead.
