The theatre is small and every seat is good. The play has only four characters. Every character was fully developed. It was a very thought provoking play Bravo!!!!

A moving depiction of family dynamics over time, with excellent and deeply felt performances by all cast members. We were so engrossed that the intermission felt like an unwelcome interruption. Recommended for all ages teenage and up.

A warm and wrenching play about a loving African-American family facing its troubles with humor, resiliency, and grace. Set in a beleaguered Kansas City neighborhood, two grown brothers try to balance the challenges of their own lives with their desire to care for their ailing father. Even as they remember simpler times, tension builds between the brothers as their conflicting interests churn into a surprising outcome.
