In this exciting world premiere inspired by real events, truth becomes slippery and racial tensions reach a boiling point. CQ/CX raises difficult questions about the state of our media culture, and the meaning and price of journalistic integrity.
Jay, an up-and-coming reporter at The New York Times, finds his dreams of becoming a famous journalist come crashing down as he becomes the center of a plagiarism scandal. Drawing on his own experience as a newsman, playwright Gabe McKinley weaves a revealing and complex story about the collateral damage of unchecked ambition and compounded lies.
