Exploring culture’s obsession with true-crime, LaShea Delaney’s Moniece Clark considers what makes
one woman more valuable than another in this weird and funny play that follows Moniece Clark, a woman who has vanished from a California desert town. Her sister, Mimi, must trace her whereabouts with the help of a burnt-out television detective and the online sleuth community that has never given up on Moniece’s case. Moniece Clark brings themes of feminism, race, intersectionality, and media bias to the fore, while examining elements of true crime TV, camming (as in cam girls), Law and Order: SVU, suburban sprawl, and the desert at night. Taken from the press release.
