Jo Masterson is just trying to establish a law practice; shes not interested in plumbing the depths of the true meaning of love. But her newest clients are a young white woman and a wealthy black businesswoman battling over the custody of a disabled black teenaged girl.
As she leads them through a fiery legal battle, Jo -- the fictional heroine of Cori Thomas My Secret Language of Wishes -- begins to consider the notion of unconditional love. Such is the dramatic crux of Black Theatre Troupes latest effort, which is directed by Steve Broadnax and stars Lillie Richardson.
The production finishes its 10-day run this weekend at Viad Corporate Centers Playhouse on the Park, 1850 North Central Avenue.
