THE PLAY: Accomplished theatre/TV actor Charlayne Woodard wrote this recollection of highlights from her first 11 years.

 

THE PRODUCTION: Haliya Roberts has been in 2 previous Richmond shows, but this role gives her a chance to display her considerable talent. She brings a bracing physicality and impressive versatility to every moment…jumping in and out of various personalities…as she recounts the highlights from her character’s youth. Roberts is a captivating storyteller brimming with life, joy and occasional pain. With only a bench, director Carol Piersol has let the staging focus on the stories, while nicely augmenting Roberts’ abundant skill. Erin Barclay’s simple lighting also adds depth. Running time: 1:20 (No intermission)

 

THE POINT: This breakthrough performance by Haliya Roberts firmly stakes her claim as one of our community’s exciting new talents

 

4.5 out of 5 stars (4.5 / 5)

 

Part of the Women’s Theatre Festival sponsored by 5th Wall Theatre and TheatreLAB at The Basement thru 4/17

  1. I thoroughly enjoyed the show. It was thought provoking and at times, very funny.
    A performance well done by MS. Roberts.
