Even though our seats were in the last row, the house was sold out so we felt lucky to be there at all.

“A weird and wonderful new play – an inexpressibly moving theatrical fable about love, loss and the pleasures and pains of memory. Not to be missed by anyone with an interest in fresh theatrical voices.” –New York Times
“Exhilarating! A luminous retelling of the Orpheus myth, lush and limpid as a dream where both author and audience swim in the magical, sometimes menacing, and always thrilling flow of the unconscious.” –The New Yorker
“Exquisitely staged by Les Waters and an inventive design team. Ruhl’s wild flights of imagination, some deeply affecting passages and beautiful imagery provide transporting pleasures. They conspire to create original, at times breathtaking, stage pictures.” –Variety
