When Sarah Palin used, and subsequently apologized for, the phrase “real America,” she touched on uneasy attitudes many Americans have regarding cultural identity. Kevin Kautzman explores these attitudes in his award-winning play Coyote. The production follows two “minutemen,” Vince and Luke, as they patrol a small stretch of the Arizona-Mexico border. The piece examines the cultural and racial barriers within and without the United States and discusses what the hell constitutes “real America” anyway?
