“Mesmerizing [and] . . . thought-provoking."

“Phillp Rose has staged Abrons' unsettling story with tension, grace, and wit. Together they have fashioned a contemporary social drama along the lines of Odets, offering both sides Of reasoning on the topics being debated. Their ensemble cast works well together, with Rubens as the opinionated patriarch. Hutchison and Coleman as the outspoken interracial couple, and Gammy L. Singer as the family cook giving the most compelling portrayals.”

“A highlight is the almost surreal moment when Bruce and the family's cook, Cecelia (the affable Gammy L. Singer), suddenly drop into a playful massa'-slave routine… It's a moment of very smart playwriting, in which an interesting and unexpected bit of human interaction tells us an enormous amount about the characters and those around them.”
