Published Reviews

"In fiercely written dialogues, each damaged person unlocks another. Hoffman writes beautifully for actors: climactic, showcase scenes . . . ruthlessly grown-up."

Helen Shaw, Time Out New York (Critics' Pick)

"A meticulously mapped land of poetic coordinating points . . . replete with feral imagery and earthy symbolism . . . The play is best in its moments of quiet strain, in naturalistic dialogue that suggests how good will goes awry when we are trying our hardest to bond . . . [a] mystical cocktail of a play."

Ben Brantley, The New York Times
