Editorial Reviews

Eastside Journal (Seattle)
...a delightful revelation of a writer at play; and also an odd, haunting, moving theater piece of lingering beauty.
Shepherdstown Chronicle
A perfect little jewel of a play. Dietz's writing is so well crafted...that he manages to bring all of the S characters to life...though none but two ever appear on stage.
