Thought-provoking, Great writing, Great acting, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if you would enjoy the family tension caused by religion, loss of a child, interracial marriage, small town mindedness all set in the 1960's.

Don't see it if any of the tensions mentioned are trigger items for you or if you are looking for a light family drama.

Intense, Deeply considered, Great writing, Beautifully staged, Absorbing

See it if the meeting place between reality and memory has ever caught your attention; this stunning exploration of family relationships is for you.

Don't see it if you are expecting a "well made play" with turning points & resolution. The script is closer to life than then that.

Sensitive, Great writing, Relevant, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you like a look back in time to see how people felt about race and other issues.Play takes place in 2 time periods.

Don't see it if you are offended by talk of race. Points of view that would be considered racist today are in play. Read more

Great staging, Relevant, Slow, Dated, Cliched

See it if To see race relations and rural biases of the 1960's told in soft way as it would have been presented in that era on stage.

Don't see it if If you are looking for a fast paced show, this is definitely not for you. Way too slow until the final 20 of its 90 minute length.

73
Missed opportunity, Entertaining, Great staging, Great acting

See it if you enjoy a show where 3 relatively independent plot lines merge into a family's united mistreatment of their daughter.

Don't see it if a play that purports to be historically based misses the opportunity to explore the subtly of that history Read more

Disappointing, Dated, Absorbing

See it if Race has been an issue for as long as I've been living, and for someone younger this play puts events into a historical context very well.

Don't see it if There's nothing new here, but what is here is worthwhile for those interested in the subject matters.

Disappointing, Insipid, Banal

See it if For Richarda Adams performance. You like costume dramas for the costumes and sets alone.

Don't see it if Amateurish writing, unrealistic characters/motivations. The supposed "heroine" of this story is an absolutely hateful character. Just don't.

Absorbing, Great staging, Great acting

See it if You want a well acted play about family dynamics and race...Play jumps around in time...It works well.

Don't see it if You don;t like small intimate theaters with a cast of unknowns...Don;t be put off,lots of talent here.
