About the Show

Occasionally funny but never easy, this 1991 drama explores class, motherhood, prejudice, loss, and the ways that our dreams and expectations serve both to bring us together and tear us apart.

Slow, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Indulgent

See it if you like intimate dramas and are interested in class divides. The female leads are both touching.

Don't see it if you need energy in your theater. The staging was awkward with lots of distracting leaden "business" for the actors to do

Slow, Relevant, Absorbing, Disappointing, Great writing

See it if You're interested in family drama and an older show that's still relevant to today. You like small cast shows in small black box facilities.

Don't see it if You'll be overly annoyed or distracted by somewhat uneven acting (some great, most okay) or long and awkward scene changes and sound effects
