"This beginning has the kind of oddness you might feel you’ve seen before...But then the play smash-cuts into another style, and the stylization of Blush’s direction leans farther into the strange...Each of these brief episodes leaves you less, rather than more, prepared for the one to follow—they function as a meticulous disarticulation of your mental defenses...Williams’s truth, which has been delayed, runs roughshod over you. It’s goofy until it’s devastating—and it’s devastating for days."
“The whole thing is just off-kilter from the start, but that’s the point...There’s the clearly unnatural way the characters speak...Not to mention the unsettlingly matter-of-fact, yet bright, tone with which they speak about murder...The show is a sort of adventure quest...That goes on just a tad too long, in order to reach the treasure at the end: a conclusion that you don’t even know if you’ll get...It takes a while to get there, but it’s worth the wait.”
