Absorbing, Ambitious, Entertaining, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if You are interested in history, especially if you’d like to get a small taste of what it was like to grow up black in the US during Jim Crow.

Don't see it if You have a hard time sitting on metal folding chairs for two hours...bring a pillow to sit in.

Banal, Cliched, Disappointing, Indulgent, Fluffy

See it if you like a story about 2 sisters who tell there story for over a century. Some of it was interesting, pretty good direction.

Don't see it if it can be slow moving at times, educational at times. You need to like a show like this a tale tell type show that brings you through time.

"A delightful two-character play...The play moves at a leisurely, but always interesting pace, as the sisters address the audience with a fascinating oral history of their family and the world around them...Carter and Jason, worked beautifully together - totally convincing as sisters who had lived together their whole lives...The play by Emily Mann selected stories that revealed the intelligence, humor, resourcefulness, and dignity of the sisters, two remarkable and most admirable women."
