Cliched, Indulgent, Quirky, Banal

See it if About a former slave. Her quilt and what it signifies as a point of history.

Delightful, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Great writing, Entertaining

See it if you'd enjoy a wonderful presentation of a slice of history that you probably do not know. Great cast performs in word and song-best of DUF!

Don't see it if you are bothered by many scene changes in a 90 minute play with minimal sets and props.
