Long, Thought-provoking, Slow, Disappointing, Confusing

See it if you want to learn about the experiences of South Sudanese women immigrating to USA and their same sex straight marriage custom, can sit long

Don't see it if you require expert acting, staging, costumes, sets, accents, directing, and tight non-repetitious writing, can’t tolerate scream/bad diction Read more

Loved the venue and the beautiful vocal sounds heard at the beginning and middle of play, which successfully transported audience to south sudan, Profound, The play, though well-intentioned, takes on way more material than the audience can absorb, Introduces the concept of a heterosexual marriage between two women, Engrossing!!!

See it if you are a globally aware citizen who is up on South Sudan's struggle of its multi-tribes + the war that brought about independence in 2011.

Don't see it if you are a misogynist and a MAGA concept supporter. Read more
