    I rate this show a perfect ten. The best of KC Fringe this summer. This is a powerful play in terms of both the story and the acting. The lead character is a prostitute, but that is not at all what the play is about. The play examines political corruption at it’s worse, the process of how a person can be brainwashed but that person struggles to do what is right, racism in the criminal justice system, and other issues. The lead actress in this show is worthy of a Tony Award for plays! Fringe plays are only sixty minutes. This play could easily be expanded to a full length play. I hope the playwright does so.

    This is MUST SEE.
    All 3 of us gave it excellent reviews and could not talk for awhile afterwards!

    It is powerful and by far the best we’ve seen this year.

    This show will leave you speechless. Very relevant and extremely powerful. Brought tears to me and my sister’s eyes. The acting was superb and the story itself was just incredible. My only criticism is that I actually read the original play that this is based on. Much of the dialogue is the same, i would’ve enjoyed a bigger commitment to making it current. An example would be in one scene facebook is mentioned which is evidence that this is current; in a final scene a lynch mob shows up at the door. Perhaps this was symbolic but i think the actual carrying of the rope should’ve been substituted for something else because some people instantly began murmuring that “this doesn’t happen nowadays” I wouldn’t speak in absolutes and say lynch mobs don’t form, but I don’t think they go from house to house or room to room in a city looking for a culprit. This is me picking nits because this show was amazing.

      According to the NYT, 3 white teens attempted to lynch a young black boy (identified as biracial) in New Hampshire on August 28, 2017. It DOES happen nowadays.
