About this show

Belinda and Cody are typical and privileged Midwestern teenage sweethearts--typical except that Cody is "rich, black, and different," in the words of Belinda, who finds herself attracted to a white classmate. As the battle for her affections is waged, Belinda and Cody doubt the foundation of their initial attraction, opening the door wide to bigotry and betrayal. The play is set on continually shifting moral ground and challenges common notions about gender, ethnicity, and love. This is How it Goes unblinkingly explores the many ways the wild card of race is played by both black and white in America. The production will feature a variation on a scene seen only in its original London production.
