A New York Premiere
At The Flea Theater
February 11 - March 18, 2019
A scorching and ingeniously plotted exploration of feminism versus rape culture in the contemporary United States is achieved in Good Friday. Playwright Kristiana Rae Colón’s audacious, fierce and gripping topical drama is ultimately a provocative vigilante yarn strewn with off and onstage violence that’s dynamically presented.

What makes Good Friday most impactful is the way it does not claim to have all the answers but instead provokes even more questions than what one started with. Through the events that unfold, Colón explores the destructive ways in which women inflict violence upon one other, and how it can sometimes be the most traumatic. It is only when women stop to listen to and help one another that the narrative truly flip—and, hopefully, change the course of society.

Good Friday is worthwhile, complex, and will undoubtedly spark necessary and urgent dialogue.

Packing many ideological points into one 80-minute play, Ms. Colón layers the text with Roman Catholic imagery. The killings, it emerges, are targeted payback for a despicable crime against a woman.
