Critic Reviews (2)

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."

"Thought-provoking, sometimes uncomfortable, mesmerizing. Those are the words that best describe 'Carefully Taught,' a new play by Cheryl L. Davis and directed by Pat Golden...Without being offensive or stereotypical, each actor moves seamlessly between each of their roles and the races of their characters. But in addition to tackling heavy topics, and making me think and question certain things, it also made me laugh."
