About the show

Nkechi was a good Nigerian-American girl. She did everything right. Went to med school. Made plans. Then life happened. A first-generation immigrant coming-of-age journey of love, loss, and growing into adulthood. More…

See it if you appreciate a beautifully crafted coming-of-age story that's staged with imagination and acted with honesty.

Don't see it if you want your plays quick, funny and forgetable.

Beautiful memory play, must-see

See it if You want to experience another profoundly moving and exquisitely written play by Ngozi Anyanwu. See it if you enjoy loose structure.

Don't see it if You may not want to see this if you have experienced a recent loss -could be reaffirming about the necessity of grief or could hit too close

Absorbing, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Resonant, Great staging

See it if you are interested in the subject of loss and relationships that could have been and were but were limited. Good acting good staging strong

Ambitious, Intense, Needs focus

See it if new writers creating complex but interesting stories with an excellent cast intrigues you; moving, funny, sexy at time. Often confusing.

Don't see it if you prefer a well-made play where all plots and sub-plots are fully and clearly written.

Poetic, Interesting staging

See it if Some very nice language - dialogue and monologues. Beautiful set and lighting. Somehow not quite as powerful as the material seems t promise

Don't see it if Think I would have gotten more involved w/a different actress (other than the playwright) in the lead-not strong enough a performer.
