This emotionally layered tale from Tony-nominated playwright Quiara Alegria Hudes flings an estranged mother and daughter together for an impromptu road trip from South Philly to Wyoming. The most interesting discovery I made along the way is that such a journey of self-discovery can unfold without treacle. Hudes plumbs serious questions of heritage and identity in a script well-marbled with exuberance, and director Tara Mallen elicits fluid, lyric performances from the four-member cast of this collaborative effort between Teatro Vista and Rivendell Theatre Ensemble. Regina Garcia's simple, angular set and Diane Fairchild's versatile lighting form an intriguing, understated canvas for powerful performances from Sandra Marquez as the Cuban immigrant mother and Ashley Neal as her assimilated child. --Keith Griffith
