This taut psychological drama focuses on the relationship between an agoraphobic mother and her precocious son, Carbon "Inky" Black. When Inky claims to have witnessed a horrific murder, his mother's refusal to acknowledge the tale and her crippling dependence on sensationalized media coverage of violence in their city, serve to isolate them both even further. Dejected and often truant from school, Inky turns to young and well-meaning guidance counselor, Lisa YellowTree, who must fight her own battles with Mr. Tucker, a gruff and seemingly uncaring Vice Principal.
Inspired by an outbreak of crime in the playwright's own neighborhood, as well as the lingering culture of fear that has grown up in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks, Carbon Black illustrates what happens when life is distorted through the lens of local television news and what the ramifications for individuals and society at large can be when the reaction to crime and violence, real or perceived, is denial and solitary confinement.
Gripping, suspenseful psychological drama. PG-13.
