"Prestininzi does a fine job of ensuring his drama has bursts of playfulness. And the comedic absurdity is primarily produced by Steele and Wisniewski.

It’s these unexpected slapstick moments that lighten the very heavy subject matter." - Katy Walsh. The Fourth Walsh. Cookie Play.
"Mike Steele’s Jeremy provides electricity in his increasingly dangerous outbursts." - Paige Listerud. Chicago Theatre Beat. Home Front.
