It's time for another visit with Midday theater critic J. Wynn Rousuck, who joins us each week with her reviews of Maryland's regional stage.

Today, she tells us about Jump, the 2019 play by Charly Evon Simpson about family, loss, spiritual journeys and fundamental connections, now on stage at Baltimore's Everyman Theater.

Directed at Everyman by Summer L. Williams, the powerful drama stars: Morgan Danielle Day as Judy; Billie Krishawn as Fay; Tony Nam as Hopkins and
Jefferson A. Russell as Dad.
