All I can say is "Wow!". I walked in the theater not knowing what to expect and was blown away by her performance and story. I'm surprised I have not heard about her before. This is theater at its best. This worth seeing again.

I think "a Stunning One-Woman Show" pretty much sums it up. She has such a funny turn of phrase, and such timing, and I laughed so much... and was also moved to tears, horrified, surprised, and delighted as the show went along. A really...continued

This one woman show was truly extraordianry. Debra was truly phenominal! It is one of the best Jamaican plays i have seen in a long time. Her depiction of life in JA at the time was certainly "on point". Great acting!!!

I must say I was a bit surprised that one person was “the play” but with her doing all those characters was just over the top unbelievable. At the end of the night I was so disoriented as I really thought that I was going outside and I was in...continued
