An excellent production. Exceptional acting and direction of a difficult but deeply moving play. This was a rare theatrical experience.

As always, A Noise Within and Eugene O'Neill are fantastic and together create memorable productions.

The new space is excellent. Parking and mass transit are easy.

I enjoyed seeing A Noise Within's new theatre venue, and the performances in "Desire Under the Elms" (especially the performance by Monette Magrath) were excellent!
