About Relevance:

Theresa Hanneck is a celebrated author and veteran feminist warrior; Msemaji Ukweli is a promising young writer who is quickly becoming the leading cultural critic on race, class, and gender for a new generation. When a heated exchange between the two women goes viral, Theresa finds herself ill-equipped to manage her message in the era of 140 character tweets-especially against a rival whose time may have come. A collision of ideals within the feminist movement propels this riveting drama from breathless start to surprising finish.

Our Relevance Review

The intellectual playfulness of Relevance, which opened Sunday night at the Lucille Lortel Theatre, has a whisper of Stoppard about it, in that it is a play about ideas and words and their relevance — which could sound stuffy, but plays with enormous vitality.
