“The situation confronting viewers of this play is disturbingly emblematic of the circumstances we find ourselves in as we try to negotiate the complexities of our post modern world... Grace Carter has nicely paced the dialogue and crisply staged the actors' movements, skillfully using Bill Tripp's set consisting of open floor backed by pale pastel-colored scrims which can generally mask or reveal actors behind them depending on Emily Stadulis's versatile light design. On the scrim backdrops left and right of the performance area, images are projected both before and during the show.”
