The pioneering LGBT magazine The Advocate called 9 GRAMS “heartfelt and often humorous” in a glowing review of the play that appears in both its print and online publications. Writer David Artavia explains playwright Maisha Yearwood “has written a brutally honest and poignant one-woman play…putting on full display the ugly truth of what it means to be a targeted Black lesbian American traveling and living abroad.” Peep the full review here.

9 GRAMS at the Inkwell

Steps from the famed Inkwell Beach on Martha’s Vineyard, prize-winning playwright Maisha Yearwood performs a reading of her work 9 GRAMS. Based on a true story, this surprisingly funny play follows Hollywood screenwriter Ayeesha Freeman as she endures solitary confinement in a Turkish prison because of how she looks and who she loves. A Q&A with Maisha will follow the performance. Sponsored by Oak Bluffs Public Library.
