An excellent production of an intriguing play … a terrific West Coast premiere. Sam Anderson elicits fantastic work from his cast." —LAist
The Water’s Edge is definitely a play you don’t want to miss. It’s the kind of play that everyone stands outside and talks about after it’s over. Suffice it to say that all the production qualities are award-worthy.” —LA Examiner
“A nuanced ensemble brings an authentic mix of light and dark to the painful proceedings of a fractured family reunion.” —_Back Stage _
“The Road Theatre troupe, one of the best in Los Angeles, never fails to astound. This dark, involving look at family dynamics and human frailty is no exception.” —_Tolucan Times _
