Published Reviews

"A rich and unusual drama that comes directly from the heart -- the kind that can pierce most bitterly."

nytheatre.com

"A provocative drama that examines issues such as single parenthood and abortion from a fresh perspective. By focusing on two male characters in relation to these hot-button topics, Beckim explores territory seldom represented in theater, while still refusing to come up with any easy answers."

theatermania.com

"...the conversations among the characters are at times witty fugues of unprintable words."
