Reviews

"Thornes gives a strong performance as Chris.Timothy John Smith is fine as the insecure husband. Slattery, Kapner and Brod play the three children with intelligence and honesty. Robert Hogan has one hilarious scene as a woefully incompetent priest. Michael Parva directs the production and does a fine job." - Theatre is Easy
