Since the leading ladies have been rightly praised by others let me put in a word for Lucian Msamati (fondly remembered from Clybourne Park) as Margaret's wayward husband, Luke, and, especially, for young Eric Kofi Abrefa as her tormented son, David - this kid is going to be a star.
If there ever was a must-see it's this one.

I can see how maybe it wouldn't be everyone's 'cup of tea' but character development/story arc shouldn't be one of them.

That said, I was never entirely convinced by the play itself 'til the final few moments when it finally won me over. It's laughable to suggest there's no character development - there is, there are some v well written parts in there - but there was something missing which I still can't put my finger on.
Cracking performances throughout. I was especially taken by Sharon D Clarke, and Dovonan F Blackwood in the smaller part of Brother Boxer. And yes, Marianne Jean Baptiste is excellent.
