Great theatre experience was one to remember. Debra brought the journey alive with her piercing silence, wide range of vocal inflection and seemingly effortless transitions from one character to the other. She is a great story teller. Her story...continued

Outstanding!!! You will laugh, and also be brought to tears. But most of all, you will absolutely enjoy. This is a show (true story) that should not be missed. I would love to see a silver screen adaptation.

The show is fantastic! Funny and anxiety provoking all at the same time. Was fully engaged from the very first line and stayed on the edge my seat for most of it. Sat back only to laugh loudly. Will likely see it again with friends when it comes...continued

Talented actress and a great story! The only problem was that the show started rather late and there was not explanation or mention of the fact. I ended up missing some plans after the fact since it started over a half hour late.

Debra was sensational! You were drawn into her fascinating story and she executed the role brilliantly. This performance would be enjoyed by everyone...you don't have to be from Jamaica. Highly recommended!

So I just happened to go to this event by chance and I was very much happy with the journey I was taken on. I thought the story told by Debra was nothing less than extremely compelling. Though the topic was quite serious it contained pockets of...continued

The show was amazing. Despite the sparse set the actor really painted vivid scenes that you could almost see, hear, touch and smell. Very talented! The pace and timing was perfect. Highly recommend!

Debra Ehrhardt was fantastic! She's an engaging storyteller and her show is hilarious! The sold-out show has been extended. I highly recommend it if you're Jamaican, Caribbean or if you just want to be really well entertained. I enjoyed every...continued
