An incredible peace of theater. Ms. Ehrhardt charms the audience with a story that is funny, moving, suspenseful and thrilling. It should be a movie! Go see it as soon as you can.

I enjoyed the performance. Some parts were a bit slow but overall definitely worthwhile.

Debra Ehrhardt is brilliant. From the moment she first emerges from the darkness she draws you into her journey and doesn't let go, even after the curtain comes down after the show. It's no wonder that all of her shows are SOLD OUT.

Compelling one-woman show -good description on the site. Very funny but also thought provoking. Extremely talented performer. Our group of 3 from NYC, DC and northern NJ all rate it highly. Great value at the low price we paid.

The play was excellent. The venue was condusive to the one woman structure of the play. The story line displayed all the human elements of a person struggling to make it and the addition of humor certainly did not hurt.

I LOVE one-person shows - and this is one of the best I have ever seen. Debra E. is an expressive, captivating performer and brilliant writer. As we were walking out I overheard the woman behind us say "I've seen the show 4 times and each time...continued

Ms. Ehrhardt was thoroughly entertaining. This was my second time seeing this play. I enjoyed it as much this time, as I did my first time. I'd even see it again. I strongly recommend this play for an enjoyable time.

Unbelievably talented actress recounts her journey from Jamaica to the USA in the turbulent 70s. Heartwarming, funny, compassionate; I
Would see this again and I never do that.
