“Playwright Edward Belling has fashioned an understated comedy out of the humdrum loneliness of aging  . . . as directed by Mark Plesent, it’s a theatrical chamber piece of curious charm, full of quietly revelatory details.” Pamela Renner, Time Out New York, June 5, 1997
“Expert performances.” Lawrence Van Gelder, The New York Times, June 4, 1997
