Ambitious, Edgy, Great writing, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if Wolfe's pitch black satire on African American mores still shocking, funny & (unfortunately) resonant Well staged in arena-style space

Don't see it if Acting is spotty & direction often slack but still packs a punch Sound design too loud (for space & actors) Audience movement can be awkward

Absorbing, Disturbing, Great writing, Intelligent, Relevant

See it if you would like a disturbing, satirical view of African-American history at an incredibly talented shoestring theatre. They do amazing work!

Don't see it if If you aren't interested in vignettes of African-American experience or are put off by uneven sound quality.
