I really wanted to like this because it is trying to generate awareness for a real issue of horrible health care in poor countries. However, the author, who also was in the play, tried to bring in way too many other side stories without really concentrating on the issue that was obviously near and dear to her heart. Also, bothered by some really obvious errors such as the apparently same aged friend of the 19 year old be an associate provost of DePaul??? Although they said it was a true story, I think there was too much poetic license that detracted from the story. The lead character went back for years to this small Haitian town and couldn't find the child she had to leave behind?? Her lover was the only doctor, but she couldn't track down this child they both saved and loved?? Would have been so much more effective if they had focused the story of how so many children can be lost in the poverty and lack of health care than on two old friends drinking to excess constantly and one being jealous of the other's loves and commitments.
