Jessica is the main character and about her growing up, with the people around her an within her constantly transforming through her youth, life, and survival.
There are themes of tricksters, abandonment, assault, rape, abuse, drug use, lack of land, and lack of faith.
Basically a very heavy read, and hard to get into.
Unlike many, I did not read the introduction describing the process of how the play was developed and the drama that surrounded it. I wanted to see how I reacted to the play itself.
