Not as good as the publicity would lead one to believe - there's little mystery here. It's entertaining enough, but not up to Metro Stage's usual caliber. We were disappointed.

Entertaining but more of a monologe than a play. Still worthwhile at the Goldstar price but not up to the usual MetroStage standard.

Excellent acting and most interesting story. Moved along quickly and liked the fact it was done without an intermission to break the story. So glad it's been extended and hope more people will have the chance to go see it.

*By Michael Hollinger 

Directed by John Vreeke

Novelist Franklin Woolsey dies mid-sentence, but his typist continues to take dictation, causing great consternation from his wife, his publisher and the general public. Where are these words coming from?

A drama about the writing process, creativity and love — with a little punctuation thrown in for good measure. 

Featuring Susan Lynskey, Helen Hedman and Paul Morella.
