Quotes & Highlights

“Monica Byrne … has masterfully drawn a smart, funny, air-tight play and, from the first lines, we feel we are in the safe hands of an exceptionally talented writer.” —NYTheatre.com-
“Clever, provocative… Director Tracy Ward stages it with a cagey, forceful momentum that draws us in and seamlessly incorporates Erika Chong Shuch’s sensuously explosive choreography… plentiful delight in the performances… an engaging ride.” -San Francisco Chronicle
“Thrilling… one of Impact’s most dramatically satisfying productions yet… Bega, Edber, Pollack and especially Stebbins give powerful performances that only grow in intensity.” -Theater Dogs
“Despite its small size, Impact Theatre always stages impressive performances. In the comfort and intimacy of this one-of-a-kind venue and under the creative direction of Tracy Ward, the story sparks to life not only on the stage but also through the entirety of the theater… Bega, Edber, Pollack and Stebbins work together fantastically.” --Daily Cal
