"One of 4 shows NOT TO MISS...Highly recommended...through old-fashioned narrative build and provocative contemporary characters, Weiss and Parrish manage to totally unsettle everyone in the place...you'll be riveted to the action." -Chicago Tribune
"Highly Recommended...delivers genuine terror in a grounded family drama...bracingly unromantic and nerve-rending..." - Time Out Chicago
"Highly Recommended. Weiss has done a masterful job...Expertly guiding her four actors...smart, sensitive direction, sharp focus and a natural pacing enhance the effortless work of her actors. Especially excellent are Ms. Weiss‘ transitions between scenes." - Chicago Theatre Review
"Highly Recommended...as sweet as it is scary—no easy feat in writing or staging. But director Erica Weiss has a Midas touch...These four completely committed performances should be preserved in amber. Seeing them is the next best thing." - Stage and Cinema
"The kind of work that gives me hope for theater’s future—it’s that good...Director Weiss has tremendous talent. Her transitions from scene to scene allowed us to stay deeply fixed on the action...All moments felt organically derived." - Epoch Times
