Review from Steve

Excellent writing and acting. Kerwin and Hicks were amazing. This is a real treat for the L.A. audience - a Broadway-level production in a very intimate space.

Review from Anne Marie Otey

A stunning opportunity to enjoy the work of a leading actor. The play is still resonating in my mind. Original, very emotional, intelligent, Broadway-caliber theater that would hold attention on a much larger stage.
