From the show:

In a journey of triumph tinged with bits of heartache, a scrappy Jersey girl-child navigates a changing world and finds the courage to live life on her own terms. Actress, soprano, and storyteller Tara Lake takes audiences on a journey into the world of African-American Jersey girlhood in the 1980s-1990s – a world of captivating characters steeped in family Sundays, church conventions, and extravagant reunions, weddings, and funerals. In this compelling sojourn embracing southern roots, gospel rhythms, and queer identity, one family’s love conquers all. Join us for an unforgettable performance of soul-rich theatre, storytelling, song, and poetry!
