"WRENCHING… Kelegian’s dead-eyed determination is the reason to see this revival of Norman’s play. Kelegian’s portrayal is all the more wrenching for its refusal to ask for sympathy. Jessie sees suicide as an existential act of freedom; we experience it as tragedy."

Charles McNulty

Los Angeles Times

"Absolutely stuns… pitch perfect!

Aliah Whitmore deftly directs her two extremely gifted actresses, Sylva Kelegian and Lisa Richards."
