Fine acting, Minimal set, Relevant, Interesting conflict

See it if Mother struggles to regain custody as daughter and husband have been caught up in charismatic religious leader’s control.

Don't see it if You believe religious control over all aspects of a child’s life is preferable to secular and religious balance.

Slow, Intense, Absorbing, Great acting

See it if You like intense drama and don't mind a somewhat anti-religion theme.

Don't see it if You don't like unnecessarily long productions

"The 2018 Jerry Kaufman Award winner "To She Who Waits" by Bob Clyman. The subtitle "God's Plan v. A Mother's Love; Winner Takes All" provides a clue to the plot…The three leading characters are written with nuance and depth not often seen in works addressing religious cults…My interest never lagged, the narrative was compelling and the portrayals were sensitively handled. This is a work worth seeing and watching where it goes next. It runs through June 8, 2019."
