“I, Zoe Kazan, share this letter because I have supported white fragility and supremacy in U.S. theatre. I have been seen doing so by the community of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) theatremakers, and I see myself and my actions in this letter. I share this to amplify the voices of BIPOC artists and administrators in our field, and to hold myself accountable for my actions.” www.weseeyouwat.com

Second to last PLOT AGAINST AMERICA (episode 5) on tonight. I may never get over how much I came to love my Levin family/friends, those on camera & those behind it. Here’s looking at you, Morgan & Azhy & Caleb & Stu & David & so many more...
THE PLOT AGAINST AMERICA episode four is available now. This week’s BTS: @azhyrobertson an actor prepares, our chairs (featuring miraculous book by @sarah_m_broom), David Simon considers the world, me looking like my grandmother Molly, old cars in modern day NJ.
It was an indescribable honor to film THE PLOT AGAINST AMERICA at the Lincoln Memorial. Many thanks to the rangers & security personnel who made that night possible. Special kudos to our fearless leader @minkiespiro, who directed the hell out of these first three episodes. I will always love our little Levin family.
THE PLOT AGAINST AMERICA episode three is on tonight at 9 pm... (plus: the views from my trailer on the Levin family vacation, and Bess Levin starts to go grey... BTS to come, don’t want to spoil anything from this episode—it’s one of my favorites) @hbo 🇺🇸🦅
THE PLOT AGAINST AMERICA is on again tonight at 9 pm @hbo. In honor of Episode Two, some BTS: 1) Bess on the monitor 2) Morgan Spector driving the Levin family car 3) my/Bess’s embroidery & 4, 5, 6, 7) ME SLEEPING ON SET. You know, my baby was little. I grabbed my opportunities👌
THE PLOT AGAINST AMERICA premieres on @hbo tonight at 9 pm. If you are self-isolating and need something to watch...you are welcome at the Levin family’s home. If you are not self-isolating yet: please read the link in my bio.
BTS on Plot: our first camera test, my research visit to the Newark Public Library, me looking in the mirror at a costume fitting (❤️ @jeriana) & wondering “is this her?”, my first visit to Philip Roth’s childhood home, and the pin Winona Ryder gave me when we started filming.
Bess Levin became a real person to me; the whole family did. I hope they feel that way to you.
