What happens when you’re caught red-handed? Wiping blood off your hands…and everyone can see you—but you didn’t realize that. And an ill-timed food delivery is calling your phone. It’s Not What It Looks Like starts there. To prove their innocence, two people, M and W, go back to the beginning with their own version of events. As tensions rise, their narrative starts to crumble, and the truth comes out. This new play by John Collins, directed by Vincent DeGeorge, and in collaboration with Chesney Mitchell, asks the question: “What does it mean to be seen as a good person?” A two-person testimony spanning several months with an assembly of characters tries to answer that. It’s a funny, suspenseful and thrilling story of grief that will make you wonder if it really isn’t what it looks like. WINNER of the SoHo Playhouse Lighthouse Series 2023.
