"Tom Jacobson's lovely new play chronicles the rituals of a women's club in rural South Dakota from the late '30s to 2007

We watch the women with whom we grow increasingly familiar age and engage in theological disputes that are really at the heart of the matter - God's purpose, and the purpose of community, interweave and clash through the decades

An impressionistic landscape that straddles the literary worlds of Anton Chekhov and Thornton Wilder" ~ LA Weekly

"Tom Jacobson has paid exemplary homage to real-life American heroes from a less jaded period in our history, using transcripts of minutes from a rural South Dakotan women's club that gathered monthly from 1934 through 2004, when the last two survivors begin to fade

These powerful Mid-western survivors are the stoic Americans to celebrate and honor, something Jacobson has accomplished with his lyrical, sweetly bucolic text" ~ Backstage
