Editorial Reviews

Chicago Daily Herald
Baron tells his tale with a discerning freshness and originality. One of the best shows around.
France Soir
Very simply, a great, beautiful, essential moment of theatre. It grabs us at the beginning and doesn't let us go until the end.
InTheater
A modern classic like this comes along once in a blue moon. A crowd pleaser, pure and simple.
Johannesburg Citizen
It is doubtful you are likely to encounter a play more enjoyable, more honestly funny and in the end, more moving than this delightful two-hander by Jeff Baron.
NY Newsday
A cannily crafted comedy-melodrama about friendship, family, and forgiveness. Baron's play runs like a well-oiled express.
Sunday Telegraph (Australia)
A wise, absorbing and funny play that packs quite a punch. Sparks fly.
Volkskrant (Holland)
Delicate, compact and compelling. A powerful play.
