Profound, Clever, Intelligent, Funny, Thought-provoking

See it if you have ever tried to balance familial relationships with personal desires. Three generations of women demand, wheedle & plead for love.

Don't see it if subtlety is not your thing. Each scene reveals something more about the relationships but events move backward and forward in time.

Absorbing, Great acting, Touching

See it if you're interested in women and their relationships with their mothers and daughters and if you love to learn new words. Strong female leads.

Don't see it if you require a linear plot, you don't like dialogue driven shows about family, or you require an elaborate set or a large space.

Absorbing, Great acting, Intelligent, Tightly directed, Touching

See it if Plays about the dynamics of mothers and daughters, or simply families in general, is of interest. I'm still thinking about it.

Don't see it if This is clearly a play for women more than men. If that's not your world, maybe take a pass.

Let's Go to the Theater
October 26th, 2016

"An intense look at the relationships between three generations of women. It features a well-developed story line and superb acting. All of this allows the audience to experience the journey that the three women are on as well as speaking directly to the emotions we all carry with us from our own life experiences...For people who want to see a good drama about family conflicts, this is a good choice to go to see."
