Review by peanutduck
Halfway through the audience started sniffling and, understandably, never stopped; a desperation, ache for home, for a Bountiful, quietly underscores every moment, from Mother Watt’s running to Ludie’s moon gazing to even Jessie Mae’s selfish martyrdom. Affecting performances by leads. Starscape magical. Bus station scene onward drags - raise the stakes.
