Written by the Tony Award® nominated artist Charlayne Woodard, this moving world-premiere play explores the complex relationship between two “alpha” women: Claire Rose, an elderly Black woman, and her middle-aged daughter, Cassandra. After not speaking to each other for the past three years, Cassandra shows up unexpectedly at her mother’s garden gate, attempting to reconcile old wounds. Both women give as good as they get, taking us on a rollercoaster ride unearthing conflicts and secrets of the past, and creating magic in the process.

“For San Diego theater-goers starved for the intimacy and energy of live theater, this is the show for you.”

“Charlayne Woodard’s play held the audience suspended in pin-drop silence.”
