Thought-provoking, Resonant, Relevant, Ambitious

See it if Some good acting esp Daryl Wyatt. A story that had to be told. Interesting info provided.. With some publicity the story can move on.

Don't see it if Some weak acting.. Theater not easy to find in the building. (Maybe we were too early for the posted signs?) The set can use more work.
