Published Reviews

"Filled with Spanish and a sense of mystery. Hudes' play swims in a sea of language. As needs and intentions get lost in translation, [Ashley] discovers that actions can forge new levels of understanding and the value of forging, and maintaining, intergenerational ties."

Theater New England

"If you enter into the glow of the play's concluding moments, before you know it you will understand the place of the sacred in human interchange and respect the place of ritual. All without benefit of priest, rabbi, or shaman."
