How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
A powerful story about a very sad subject - the use of rape as a weapon of war. Actors have an Africanized British english accent, which can make understanding them difficult, until your ears and brains reconnect. Story is about a whore house owner, in the midst of a civil war, trying to run a brothel while catering to both sides in the civil war, where most of the prostitutes have been disowned by their families after being captured and sexually abused for months and months. Its difficult to watch - by our American Morality standadrds, but a story that we all needto see , so that we can do something about stopping that strategy. The woman who plays Sophie is a fantastic singer and i expect to see her on broadway in the near future.
