“Philosophical — (Thrush) asks when one should follow one’s conscience in the face of major consequences… Butterfield does magnificent work… Ross is excellent … Magill finds moments of joy and mischief.”
-Lily Janiak, San Francisco Chronicle
“Playwright Yocky raises questions that go unanswered until the disturbing denouement. It is a wonderful script, packing the story into 70 minutes of real time, keeping the audience enthralled.” -Charles Kruger, TheatreStorm
