Thought-provoking, Relevant, Sad, Disturbing, Insightful

See it if Affluent L.A. couple goes to southern trailer park to adopt. Conflicts arise due to class, values, & culture. Good characters, well acted.

Don't see it if You want an uplifting experience. The first 2/3 of the play is better than the last 1/3. The weighty issues keep piling on.
