"...A story so closely tied to bodily appearance (cf. "Of Mice and Men") presents its own set of challenges-difficulties admirably resolved in this Arkansas-based production by TheatreSquared company. To be sure, Makha Mthembu's Paulina and Amira Danan's Ericka are required to display contrasting complexions, but director Vicki Washington also coaxes out an array of defining character traits-variations in vocal range, speed of delivery, hair-length, and texture-while Azalea Fairley's costume design deftly tweaks the severe student uniforms to reflect the individual personalities of each wearer, from the brawny Nana, slow-witted Gifty, bookish Mercy and outspoken Ama, to Jasmine M. Rush's straitlaced Headmistress Francis and Shariba Rivers's pragmatic ex-celebrity Eloise."
