It's been almost twenty-five years since Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu and his wife were executed, but their reign of tyranny still haunts many Romanians. Among them are Daniela, a young women arriving in New York to marry a businessman named Charlie. Daniela is trying to find herself, and being a mail-order bride was never in her plans. Still, she has dreams -- which are far better than the nightmares of life in Romania she still experiences. The ghosts of the Ceausescus appear in Daniela's visions as insatiable vampires, and offer surreal commentary on her journey towards the American Dream. Saviana Stanescu's play tackles serious subjects, but it handles them in a light-hearted and entertaining way, offering hope that Daniela, and the rest of Romania, will soon see better days.

This small theater production was decent. The concept was interesting and the actresses were good. They kept my attention for most of the play which is not easy to do with only two people in the play and not a lot of movement in the beginning. The one woman sat in a chair most of the time. There were some areas in the play that I thought needed tightening or needed better transitions. Not so sure about the ending either. Regardless, you should go and support this company.
Black activist and lawyer, Rehema Salaam (Brit Frazier), the daughter of an Oakland Black Panther – who sits on Death Row for the murder of an Oakland Police Officer – is locked in a room and in conflict with Kathryn Tinney (Lisa Anne Porter), the daughter of the murdered officer, in an effort to heal their open wounds. As the negotiations intensify in explosive and familiar ways, the sins of the fathers are visited upon the daughters as they battle to protect their father’s names. Directed by Edris Cooper-Anifowoshe.
