Journey This is a solo dramedy that weaves the experiences of three generations of women into a tale of connections which reveals that the power of love, choice and forgiveness lies in your own hands. It’s a transcendent love letter to family and an exercise in breaking the generational curse of stoic womanhood. As a granddaughter searches her past to make sense of her present, she works to break family cycles and awaken the power of forgiveness. While traversing through time, O’Neal’s nine diverse characters, male and female ranging in ages six to eighty, are humorously excavated and powerfully brought to life.
