Review comments

“… a carefully researched and powerfully written drama dealing with one woman’s attempt to make personal sense of a childhood dominated by an abusive father. … this important, forthright and unsentimental piece deserves wider exposure.”

Chris Jones, "New City"

“… a tour de force. It’s hard to explain exactly how stunning a piece of work it is because I was completely unable to speak when it ended – I was so thoroughly moved and blown away by the lyrical force of its words and the painful poetry of its emotional intensity and depth.”

M. J. Hochberg, "Nightlines Weekly"

“… powerful one-act investigation of incest, fragmentation, memory, denial, anger and pain. It is also a portrait of intense courage and an overwhelming will to endure.”

Martina Clarke, "Nightlines"
