About the Show

The politics of "passing" in post-war Louisiana come to life through the story of a young man who could be held back by hate, but is led forward by love.

Disappointing, Slow

See it if you are interested in a period piece from the deep South where a man might have passed for White except for that One Drop of Black blood.

Don't see it if You are not interested in a story that seems more personal than universal.

Ambitious, Cliched, Confusing, Disappointing, Slow

See it if the concept and the attempt to present it for an audience is enough for you or if the story strikes a chord, live band was a great addition

Don't see it if if poor accents and poor sound quality annoy you stay away. If you expect the whole cast rather than only 1 or 2 to perform up to par. Read more

February 4th, 2018

"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."
