Well-intentioned, but dull, Slow, but an interesting premise, The actors were earnest, but the script didn't have much.

See it if learn some American history, or just want to support All Stars Project. The show had its moments; the director used odd space pretty well.

Don't see it if Not interested in black social themes and events.

Ambitious, Thought-provoking, Slow

See it if you are interested in the history of blacks and communist politics in Alabama during the early 1900.

Don't see it if you are looking for a polished play or do not care for different political views or the early history of blacks in the south.
