seeming values and politics of the writer/performer, with which I
disagree. The person I was with absolutely...continued

If you’ve never been to Jamaica, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported there after watching this engaging and awe-inspiring performance. If you have been there, it’s unlikely that you’ve seen as vivid a picture as that which Debra Ehrhardt...continued

This one woman show was amazing! My sister saw the show when it was in NY and told me if it was ever in LA I should go and see it. I'm so glad I did!

Very entertaining. Debbie did a great job of slipping into different roles, she was very animated and conveyed the emotions of each scene. Gives a great glimpse into why so many families left Jamaica in the 70's.
