Published Reviews

"Witty, breathlessly paced, assuredly plotted."

Vladimir Zelevinsky, Boston Globe

"The two workers drift along in shades of moral grey, deception, lies, betrayal ... not far removed from the modern office ... the two players twist the plot as they twist the knife, spitting forceful, crackling dialogue back and forth..."

ThreeWeeks: The Edinburgh Festival Newspaper

"[O'Donnell's] hilarious dialogue and unexpected power shifts are a delight."

Terry Byrne, Boston Herald

"The play unfolds like a lush, continually surprising flower."

Larry Stark, Theater Mirror
