"The only vacancy I felt in the play’s speedy 70 minutes is more insight into the gentler times Benji and Erasmus must have shared. Surely the two shared a few laughs, a moment or two of actual bonding. Constant antagonism can’t be enough to link these two characters. The banter is too one dimensional to come from three dimensional characters. Just don’t let this glimpse of exposition come at the expense of the very funny actor, director or playwright jabs."

"Deftly and humorously written by J.B. Heaps, 'The Immortal Coil' shines a light on the theatre and the egos that inhabit, while also questioning the nature of art and life (and, I suppose, afterlife). Heaps' dialog is crisp, with an insider's view of some of the follies of theatrical endeavors...Heaps' play is a humorous rumination on life and theatre, with interesting characters, and well worth checking out."
