Pulitzer Prize-nominee Lee Blessing (A Walk in the Woods) wrote this compelling two-person drama focusing on the mother of an African dictator and the English ophthalmologist from whom she seeks help for her failing eyesight. But each of these powerful women harbors a hidden agenda that threatens to trigger a bloody chain of events with life-and-death consequences, leaving them both to struggle with the moral dilemma of what separates the personal from the political. Nan McNamara and Leslie Thurston star in this Actors Co-Op production. Learn More

Good use of the space, great set and lighting, timing was a bit slow and some of the character development in a couple of actors who played Hyde was limited almost to a cartoon level; but in general a good production, the translation of the novel to the stage work beautifully. Thank you for the show.
