“The play is very well directed by Joan Kane.” Paul Levy in FringeReview, August 7, 2013
Paedophilia is not the most common of subjects of a play, but it is tactfully tackled by the company, who effortlessly captures the devil-may-care spirit of youth, of jealousy, and of suspicion. Four Stars. yodamo in MumbleTheatre.net August 9, 2013
