Absorbing

See it if You enjoy powerful, masterful acting. If you feel strongly about the injustices of the 1920’s South, Mississippi, and how some people cope.

Slow, Intense, Great acting

See it if you like a 90 min slow burn in an intimate theater. A simple two person show— Ashleigh Awusie is especially great as Berta.

Don't see it if A dialogue heavy show that’s emotional, covers heavy themes, and slow at times. Heavy southern accents are used throughout.
