CRITIC RAVES

Philip Brandes of the LA Times

Marrying plot intricacies worthy of Jane Austen and the emotional expressiveness of contemporary African American voices, Harriet A. Dickey's JOLETA proves a gripping, tightly scripted generational saga about a family uncovering dark secrets in its painful history with clear insightful direction by Nancy Cheryll Davis-Bellamy.


R.M. Sydnor from The L.A. Sentinel

JOLETA was one of the bright surprises in the summer LA theater scene ...The interplay among the women, who are more than than simply caricatures of African-American women, dazzles and is well acted. Veronica Thompson & Teressa Taylor as Wendolyn and Ambrosia ignite the stage and William L. Johnson's devilish young Vernon captures our attention whenever he's on stage ... Nancy Cheryll Davis-Bellamy's direction deserves high marks. JOLETA is rewarding theater with plenty of laughs and tears.


The L.A. Weekly

A very talented cast makes JOLETA well worth the price of admission.


LA Watts Times

JOLETA has a charismatic ensemble in Harriet Dickey's suspenseful drama.
