Queens Chronicle

"The play takes time to develop, building to a truly terrifying climax, with much of the action in complete darkness. The final moments will have you holding your breath and holding on for dear life. Christina Elise Perry as Susan will have you convinced she is blind and you will feel her terror." Full Review

Times Ledger

"As blind Susan Hendrix, played by a radiant Christina Elise Perry, and the villainous Roat, Kirk Gostkowski in yet another astonishing performance, struggle around the darkened set, the only sounds heard are of raspy breath and kitchen chairs hitting the floor…It is during those final scenes where Roat is in full psycho mode that Gostkowski dazzles with his abilities. He is scary, funny, disturbing and disgusting all at once." Full Review
