“Kermit Frazier is one of the most underrated, under-the-radar African American playwrights of his generation … [His] plays are both lyrical and richly theatrical. And while they typically deal unflinchingly with the landscape of African American life and the socio-political issues of that life, the scope of his work ranges far beyond that culture.” —Woodie King, Jr., Producing Director, New Federal Theatre

“Frazier has a perceptive feel for the rhythms of battle between lovers … This is a beautifully shaped play …” —Damien Jaques, Milwaukee Journal
