"The combination of science fiction alongside folk music does not seem immediately complementary. But this is where the brilliance of this piece comes...Not only are the songs well-written and performed, but they are woven so beautifully into the fabric of the play that the piece takes on an elegance not usually associated with Fringe shows...Under Davis’ direction and the fine cast, the tone is consistently hopeful and honest."
