Audiences and critics cheered this play by a talented new American playwright in Atlanta and New York. Set in a rundown old southern house on 25 acres of valuable land, the play is about the gathering of the Vaughnum family for the reading of crotchety old Aunt Pearl's will. The secrets of three generations are revealed slowly as the potential heirs try to decide who is the rightful owner of the property.
"A richly textured work about a disputed inheritance, miscegenation, unrequited incestuous love and greed masquerading as Christian righteousness...It's a funny and poignant human comedy." - Variety
"This play would tear the house down anywhere. It's just plain wonderful." - Atlanta Journal
