“Wonderful contemporary family drama...Lyman quite skillfully transforms the familiar premise...into an engrossing play. The characters are all fully developed, background information is smoothly imparted and the dialogue is a rich blend of humor and emotion. The plot has suspense and resonance as both arguments are set forth with equal validity...A lovely and fresh spin on perennial situations and is a welcome opportunity to experience the magic of Lyman.”

“Lyman’s performance is riveting. She embodies this woman with a fighting spirit with comedic chops and handles the resignation with heartbreaking resolve...McHugh uses the space well and allows the actors to really dig deep into a very touching play...Lyman manages to bring in all the controversial subjects people are talking about today, without making the play seem overstuffed. Lyman’s writing is poignant, funny, and an emotional rollercoaster.”

“An old-fashioned, well-written American drama set in a contemporary setting. With the help of some intelligent and emotional dialogue, this play triumphs in drawing people into the lives of these characters, and exploring the motives and psychology behind them...The show has such a strong cast of actors. Not only is Lyman’s writing talent on full display here, but so is her acting ability, as she succeeds in delivering an emotional and nuanced performance.”
