My overall impression

This one woman play was touching and hilarious!

I loved how Liz Femi was able to embody a wide range of colorful characters. Seeing her transform back and forth between three kids, or to and forth between her and her mother, was fun and entertaining.

The story was a nice inversion of a classic tale and an interesting peek into what life feels like for an 8-year-old middle class Nigerian girl. If you enjoy seeing something different and like a mix of comedy and drama, I highly recommend this!!
