November 16th, 2015

"'Carefully Taught' is truly fascinating. The themes and topics Davis brings up are important and thought provoking...the way Davis structures the story is a bit problematic. Davis tries mightily hard to play with duality. And it’s certainly a stimulating idea. But the split scenes that Davis offers are a bit difficult to play on stage...'Carefully Taught' is anything but careful. It’s daring. And should be praised. But Cheryl L. Davis’ storytelling could use some more workshopping."

But in addition to tackling heavy topics, and making me think and question certain things, it also made me laugh."
