Searing and immaculate ... superbly performed.
A masterful performance, with words of savagery spat out like bullets… a bold, moving and timely tribute.
Earnest, honest, simple and powerful words.
Dael Orlandersmith gives a riveting performance.
Relatable and current… confronts the powerful forces of history, race and politics.
Features a commanding performance from Orlandersmith.
Dael Orlandersmith is terrific... a commanding, amazing grace.
Fluid and flowing, each monologue feels as if it is unravelling, unrushed.
Beautifully measured solo tour de force.
Orlandersmith allows her characters to be more than their politics or prejudices
Never less than absorbing – and frequently illuminating
I was held throughout the whole performance.
Written and performed with sorrow, anger, humour and, principally, compassion, it is a deeply moving response to an agonisingly significant chapter in the history of race in America.
Truth-telling about a touch-paper subject, a theatrical journalist telling it like it is.
Confiding, ruminating, direct
A haunting meditation on community in all its messy and at times curmudgeonly ways
Orlandersmith's own, searing wake-up call.
