"The script, the direction and the acting combine in excellent fashion to support the truth that there are more differences within any group than there are between groups. Director John Lampe deftly draws out of the actors exceedingly distinct characters, each unique in their observations and way of talking, but also each with their own foibles and prejudices."

"Very, very lively. And entertaining. And often thought provoking...'Aunt Jack' has an exceptionally fine cast...No brief summary can really do justice to the thematic terrain that is covered in this play. It seems to delight in examining one thematic permutation after another relating to human identity and attraction. The 90 minute running length is densely packed with a lot of laughter and intriguing, challenging ideas. And those 90 minutes fly by quickly. Very, very quickly. "
