August, 2016. The NFL is being shaken by Colin Kaepernick’s monumental decision. Whilst other players join him in taking the knee, star running back Luis Moreno is all about his game – and his pay check. A record-breaking season is in sight – but America’s leadership is changing. When a destructive new reality hits close to home, Luis is forced to ask whether politics have a place on the field, and if he is willing to risk his career to take a stand for his own community. But does, and should, this movement hold a place for them?

Pravin Wilkins is a playwright, poet, and fiction writer from San Diego, California, whose works typically deal with race and class struggle - and the many intersections between. He began writing plays during his undergraduate education at UC San Diego, where he was presented the faculty-nominated Eric Bowling Award for his site-specific protest piece #takebackgraffitihall. A couple years later, while pursuing his MFA in Dramatic Writing at Carnegie Mellon University, his play Moreno was selected as a finalist for the 2020 National Playwrights’ Conference at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre Center-- subsequently, Moreno was featured in Kane Repertory Theater's New Play Lab reading series. After earning his MFA, Pravin was chosen as a Fall 2020 Writer-in-Residence at City Books in Pittsburgh, where he is continuing his work as a writer, educator, and activist. His plays and poems have since been featured and digitally produced by The Dramatic Question Theater (The Hamlet Monologues, 2021) and Four Walls Theater (Bars, 2020; Reclamation, 2021).
