with Michael Barrett Austin, Alexandra Creighton and William Wolak

"The cast captivates from the start...[the actors do] a terrific job of playing their roles in a hugely realistic manner that makes the play feel as much like eavesdropping as watching a performance."
- Pat Craig, The Contra Costa Times/Valley Times

"One of the finest plays I have seen in the Tri-Valley...Hannah Knapp is as eloquent with her facial expressions as with her spoken words, which are phenomenal. Three equally strong actors are perfect foils...a memorable theatrical experience."
- Susan Steinberg, The Independent
