Disappointing, Confusing, Indulgent, Slow, Badly acted

See it if you want to see a play with many ideas that goes nowhere. The actors, mostly amateurs, can barely be heard or understood most of the time.

Don't see it if you're looking for an equal to the great play "the Octoroon", which about the same subject.

"The play is structured like an epic folk tale and enriched with original music...Fulton brings to the stage several familiar tropes from 19th century Southern plantation life—some a bit too romantic, some with a 20th century perspective...Within those tropes, however, Ms. Fulton embeds the American racial malaise at the core of its racially mixed history. This is what drives the dramatic energy of the play...Come to the play and you will clap to a hopeful vision."
