Here published for the first time, Reed s plays follow the ancient tradition of using the theater as a forum in which the official versions of our history can be critiqued.

Dealing with subjects that mainstream theatergoers might find disturbing homelessness, the arbitrary entrapment of a black politician, the excesses of the radical feminist movement, the use of black conservatives to promote right-wing agendas, the exploitation of blacks and Africans as unsuspecting guinea pigs by the pharmaceutical industry, and the hypocrisy of the Christian church Reed s plays are a pungent antidote to the watered-down world of contemporary pop culture, where, Reed argues, minority voices remain as marginalized and stigmatized as they were a hundred years ago.
