Banal, Dated, Disappointing, Excruciating, Fluffy

See it if you like a story about women going through ww2 period in the south.

Don't see it if Its about 25 minute to long, acting is okay, story line is weak as is the staging.

Cliched, Dated, Disappointing, Charmless, Long

See it if you’re really pining for a little Southern charm (very little).

Don't see it if slice-of-life period Americana featuring a totally charmless dysfunctional extended Southern white family is not your cup of ice tea. Read more

"While the character of Sybil is written to be interesting, Callahan comes off as lazy and flat instead of languid...Even when she is tragic, she is boring. Luckily, as Weetsie and Tood, Milner-Sweetser and Carillo more than make up for that...The writing and directing took the time to draw out each character...No matter how they may self-identify, every audience member will see themselves in the women in this play. Highly recommended."
