Katherine Littrell gives an operatic and beautifully detailed performance of this gorgeous debut. Told in four distinct sections, it follows four generations of one family from 1910 through 2015. Through complicated specific characters, Wolfgang-Smith explores themes of inheritance, silence, trauma, and queerness, tracking what gets passed down between parents and children and what gets lost. Littrell creates unique personas for every character--from the gentle, softly accented lilt of a Bohemian glassblower in 1910 to the brash, rough-edged voice of a middle-aged window washer in 1980s New York. Her performance feels like a kind of time travel as she brings each place and time period to life. Her expert narration captures all the emotional nuances of this unusually structured family saga.
