Very strange show. Mostly good performances but a few of the weaker ones were very distracting. Not sure I would see this one again but I think that's more about the content of show and not the quality of the production.

“Artistic Director Robert Tobin confidently guides his five-member ensemble through the growing suspense. He skillfully leads his actors along this roller coaster of apprehension and foreboding that begins from the first moment until events finally spin out of control.” —Chicago Theatre Review
