  1. Great dialogue and performances. Well played moments of tension and humour. This is about the many sides to a story and place.

  2. Through this play, I felt as if I were eavesdropping on Real Life. It’s the kind of subtle, unforced acting I myself wish I could do more of. Great stuff.

  3. What a great production! Congratulations to Jesse on writing this wonderful story that brought me back in time to a place up north so long ago. So wonderfully performed, truly enjoyed.
