Justice? Or...Just Me?: The Bite is the first in a trilogy of shows chronicling the journey of a Black woman who leaves an abusive marriage to a White man.
"Writer, actor, and activist Lorinda Hawkins Smith's compelling solo performance Justice? Or Just Me?intricately remixes incisive text and soulful vocal rhythms and textures to examine a Black woman's encounter with law enforcement, domestic violence and her interracial marriage to a White man."
"Justice? Or...Just Me?: The Bite started as a ten minute monologue workshopped in Skid Row in 2007. After performing the mini solo show for ten years, Lorinda was able to be part of REDCAT's Studio in 2018 where she incorporated mixed media with the piece.
Understanding the story is too large to fit into one show, it will now be a trilogy: Justice? Or... Just Me?: The Bite, The Fight, The Flight. Justice? Or...Just Me?:The Bite is show one and gives birth to the book series of the same title.
