"A must-see, not only for its harrowing subject matter but for its superior direction and for its exceptional cast. It is also the play's blend of the surreal, magical realism, along with the very real, marbled throughout with mind-triggering allusions and mystery, all of which serve to keep the audience riveted to the stage. Talk about the playwright and cast cautiously walking a wobbly tightrope with not a misstep in view."
