I felt as though, I was able get to see & witness how things are not always what they seem & to be in a position of authority sometimes requires a gift discernment. It easy to just try to put people or something we don't understand in a box, rather than listening or getting a better understanding. This show made me stop with this preconceived stereotype notion and listen & find out more before you judge. Wow! Amazing!

Along with taking us on a journey through this heartbreaking justice system of ours, she was also able to capture the nuances and complexities of the human condition..of love, of what we think love is…it was al... full review

Lorinda is a powerful performer with a fountain of emotional range. The way she engages her material and brings to the forefront issues that are not easily digestible or conversational is a gift to the community. May she continue the work. ... full review
