The chains of slavery may have fallen away, but invisible bonds still shackle the four girls in Sweet Maladies, the potent play from Zakiyyah Alexander (10 Things To Do Before I Die). In the tumult and confusion of the Reconstruction, three former slaves -- all sisters -- and their former mistress grapple with power and place. Longstanding assumptions are overturned and dark secrets are unearthed in this bittersweet and shocking play based on the Jean Genet classic, The Maids. Edris Cooper-Anifowoshe directs Kehinde Koyejo, Stefanee Martin as well as Lisa Porter and Brit Frazier (from last year's In a Daughter's Eyes) in a joint production of Brava! for Women in the Arts and Black Artists Contemporary Cultural Experience.

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.
