Published Reviews

"The resolution is as emotionally powerful as it is unexpected."

Door County Peninsula Pulse

"Tears accompany the laughter...a play that reminded me of Ordinary People."

The Milwaukee Journal

"Loaded with questions, answers, dilemmas and paradoxes -- the stuff of humanity. Nearby is humor forged of fire."

Warren Gerds, wearegreenbay.com

"Full of laughter and light even in the darkest moments."

Erin Hunsader, Door County Advocate
