"A Son Mourns in ‘Notes on My Mother’s Decline’: Intimate but distant by design, Andy Bragen’s play takes us on a journey many are likely to face with an aging parent."
"Echoes Grief at Fourth Street Theatre"
"'Notes on My Mother's Decline' makes a persuasive argument that, ultimately, one's parents become one's children, and not very obedient ones at that."
"Knud Adams directs this one-set show which at times has moments of humor, but overall is a slow-moving and usually depressing narrative. Ari Fliakos, who plays the son, gives a reserved performance. Too often I thought of the somber tones of 'The Twilight Zone's' Rod Serling."
"A Theasy Best Bet…This is a play that slowly soaks you up with its sincerity, bringing you to a raw and vulnerable place ever so imperceptibly…The staging of the piece by the ingenious director Knud Adams is as precise and elegant as the language."
