Screen actors Ana Nicolle Chavez (Truth Be Told) and Miles Fowler (Winning Time) star as G and B, respectively, two life-long friends. Zi Alikhan directs the work, which explores G's and B's experiences—good and the bad—living in America.

Amanda Rose Villarreal is intimacy coordinator, and casting is by The Telsey Office. Brandon Hong Cheng serves as stage manager, and Lydia Runge is assistant stage manager.
Playwright Majok is currently working on the Broadway-aimed musical adaptation of The Great Gatsby with Florence and the Machine’s Florence Welch and Thomas Bartlett, and her Pulitzer-winning play Cost of Living is currently making its Broadway debut via Manhattan Theatre Club.
