After two years of separation, a pair of sisters from an ecclesiastical family reunite to navigate the murky waters of identity. The four millennial women united by this reunion struggle for clarity in their most significant relationships; those with God, those with lovers, those with family. A wrenching exploration of love, sexuality, and sisterhood, Dike questions the walls religion and social conditioning build in us.

2050 Fellowship project for director Tatiana Pandiani
"The play 'tackles this time-tested issue of sexuality and religion in a funny, awkward and really touching way, without preaching. It draws such honest, beautiful characters that you’re able to sympathize with them both so much. That’s what makes it tremendously affecting,' [Brendan Regan, Co-Artistic Director] said.
'Benitez is the author of several full-length plays, with such titles as Whitewashed,' B1TC0N, The Weight of Water and Goy Toy.”
The production will be staged by Tatiana Pandiani, who also directed a recent staged reading at New York Theatre Workshop."
