PRESS REVIEWS

Potently brought to life at Rogue Machine… Directed with remarkable concentration… The chemistry between Anderson and Cummins initially seems odd, but they inhabit the painful paradoxes of their characters with startling believability.

[read the entire review here]

Robin Larsen directs with a fine eye for detail and the careful unraveling of emotional ambiguities. Anderson captures the growing frustration of a man trying to deal with a loose cannon from his past that has returned to threaten his future, while Cummins reveals the endless desperation of a woman who has for years cherished a thwarted, hopeless love.
