“…Nottage’s play has a delicacy and eloquence that seem absolutely right for the time she is depicting…” – The New York Daily News
“…thoughtful, affecting… The play offers poignant commentary on an era when the cut and color of one’s dress – and of course, skin – determined whom one could and could not marry, sleep with, even talk to in public.” – Variety
