for a previous production "The play deals particularly with the trials of self-acceptance and acceptance in society in a cultural landscape that views homosexuality as choice and it believes it to be wrong...The chemistry between Black and Smyth is impressive and palpable as they seem to be on the same page and are clearly enjoying themselves...Both are also insanely charming...This show is an absolute cannot-miss."

for a previous production "There are poignant moments of acceptance as well as bigotry and misunderstanding during the campaign...This is a tale of two delightfully ordinary Irish women falling in love at a time when the possibility of marriage seemed out of the question...Blake and Smyth worked so well together it was impossible not to be captivated from the start...I’m not saying there wasn’t a dry eye in the place but from where I was sitting I couldn’t see one."

for a previous production "A joyous, life-affirming, intimate detailing of the white knuckle journey to marriage equality in Ireland...The story begins at the end and then returns to the beginning, detailing in a series of delightful, playful, and humorous vignettes...The light-hearted, soft-touch approach taken...masks a deeper message about the impact of identity and the denial of rights which so many of us take for granted...A perfectly rendered, heart-warming, necessary light in the darkest of moments."
