Chicago Reader - Highly Recommended

"...Wilson's prized chifforobe—passed down for generations and used at one time to shelter runaway slaves in its false backing—is the central metaphor and physical manifestation of the warring forces facing African Americans in this country. It conceals as much as it reveals. It carries a weighty load, but with its doors flung open is ready to take on whatever comes."

Let's Play at ChicagoNow - Highly Recommended

"...The question this play asks the audience is, "Can you bear the weight?" The weight of being black and blue, dealing with police shootings, infidelity, selfishness, daddy issues, marital strife, and whether or not to have children. After seeing the robust performance of three characters coming to life in Tracy Conyer Lee's play 'Rabbit Summer,' you will walk away wondering if anyone can say yes."

Picture This Post - Recommended

"...If you, like this writer, find the story implausible, you can't fault Reams' performance, given what she has to work with. Rather, you too may find yourself keeping your attention especially on Patterson's stand out performance. The many theater-goers who especially love plays that focus most on dynamics between characters will likely find this a top pick."
