      3.5* for the play itself & 4* for this full cast digital audiobook. Upper class African-American family dynamics during a weekend at Martha's Vineyard when the 2 sons bring home their girlfriends for the first time (one of whom is (view spoiler)[a WASP though Flip, the elder son, tells everyone before she arrives that she "isn't white, she's Italian"! (hide spoiler)].

      Another unhappy family unhappy in their own way. I also listened to the Audible version. This was an engaging play with powerful performances that tackled race, gender, and class in tangible ways. It was funny at times, sad at others, but always entertaining and I walked away from it with plenty to think about. It's well worth the 2 hour listen.

      I listened to this because Audible offered it free for Black History Month. Such a great play. The actors and the story line were superb. I never gave much thought to "listening" to plays, but I'm definitely planning to do it again.

      Temporarily banned from using the computer, iPad and reading physical books as a result of an eye injury, I have discovered the wonderful world of audio books and play readings. An engaging production with much food for thought. Three and a half stars.

      A very engaging take on the dynamics of race, socio-economic factors, classism, adultery and infidelity and the power of learning to let go.

      Wonderful play about the relationships between race/gender/class and the myths we tell ourselves. All dealt with using great wit and grace. It's a short Audible play. Good narrators.
