Very solid work everywhere. This is a main stage ensemble play at the Fringe! I really liked the history of the play, the work of the actors, and became more and more engrossed in the characters' conflicts.

I thought the acting was incredible - in particular Asia Lynn Pitts really stood out. A strong script with a compelling story and fantastic dialogue. A few technical issues which I'm sure will be smoothed out pretty soon.... full review

LUCKY MOR certified reviewer June 15, 2018
Matthew truly knows how to use the stage to his advantage. His use of the space and lighting really was gorgeous. The actors, in particular Asia are truly engaging and the spirited performances ring out. The story, though period, really speaks to even todays current appropriation or take over of minority culture/entrepreneurship. Some of the dialogue was quite striking which I adored.... full review
