"Invigorating and relevatory. Provoking in the most powerful and positive sense." John Murrell

"It's a very strong and striking piece, which creates and sustains a world very much beyond our experience and does so with conviction and horror." Urjo Kareda

"The storyline, the characters, their situation draws you into the play. The situation is delicious and it keeps you off balance. It is strange, violent and nutty. Intriguing."
Sharon Pollock

"Much like Bob Dylan's 'A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall,' Sandra Dempsey has given us a cautionary tale that shows us what can happen in the face of insurmountable odds. However we feel about the choices that her characters make, we are left with the thought that all that we have to hold on to is what we believe in, and when that leaves us, we are indeed lost."
