What people said….
James Joyce wrote, “In the particular is contained the universal.” In Accelerating Change, writer-director Juanda Hall has deftly started with the particular – exploring the highly personal desire to change things for the better in a saga of an African-American family's experiences through several generations. The characters find themselves trapped by the past and desperately wanting to escape to a different future. The play is full of emotions that are universally felt: searing anger, tempered with love and ultimately, hope.
It's an exhilarating theatrical experience.
Geoff Loftus, author of Murderous Spirit
