"Wounds abound in Diamond’s complex, effervescent, and ultimately devastating story
of the LeVay family, directed here by Justin Emeka with both nuance and verve. It is
not a spoiler to say that the inflicting force is racism, yet this play is not a blunt
polemic. Rather, it is an intimate look at the pressures that wide-spread racism can
exact on the Black American family, the fissures that form under those pressures and
the destructive selfishness and self-doubt that can fill in the cracks."
