Professional reviews

"Tiara Bynum is a beautiful African-American on the cusp of womanhood. Haughty, manipulative, and used to getting her way, she finds that her narcissistic behavior ultimately leads to her downfall. Specifically, when the man of her dreams does not return her ardor, she makes decisions that have disastrous consequences for all concerned. Susan Spain's narration gives vitality to this conflicted young woman. Buyer beware, this is a realistic portrayal of contemporary urban life, and the auxiliary characters use profanity in just about every sentence. But make no mistake--this is a provocative production.
