REVIEWS & TESTIMONIALS
Kim Morgan Dean presents a tour de force as the resilient Susan, creating a heroine that we root for whole-heartedly. Dean sensitively portrays her vulnerability, but also renders the determined and quick-witted woman who constantly amazes us by refusing to succumb to her limited resources.Bonny GableFreelance Writer
This entire play was one of the most alluring I have ever seen at Barter Theater. The entire cast was at the top of their game in some of the best acting I have ever seen in any medium.Zach Cooley
