"An engrossing piece of theater with a manifest compassion for downtrodden black women of underappreciated courage and
intelligence, women sentenced to discontent and rage by the low expectations of an unenlightened age. . . Rangy and ambitious."
-- Peter Marks, The New York Times
"[An] intriguing and ambitious new play ... [that] demonstrates that the truth can be a lot more complicated than
fiction." -- David Kaufman, New York Daily News
