    Beautifully performed and written. Every character was believable, and captivating - yet it was only 1 actress. Lovely theatre also.

  • Review Avatar Sep 18, 2019

    A well-acted production, but not the most enthralling of plays. Provocative on a troubling subject.

    A profound, moving play, how she portrayed all of the characters with little more than a chair and one prop per character let alone remember all,of the dialogue is unbelievable. First rate,
