"With his earthy, expressive and humorous dialogue, Mr. Jones renders each character with depth and feeling...As the play’s centerpiece Tupelo, SJ Hannah is a commanding whirlwind of comedic flourishes and soulfulness...Charles Weldon’s fine direction aids these sensitive performances...Michael A. Jones’ passionate eloquence and the strong performances compensate for the production’s limited presentational values."
