"Parsons, a skilled director, knows how to forge a period milieu and let actors breathe."
- Chicago Tribune
"The play brims with warmth, humanity, and humor, plus honest sentiment that never descends into sentimentality."
- Copely News Service
"Every piece of this production fits together to make this story both comic and sad, but of most importance, real."
- Chicago Stage Standard
"There's no denying the long and chilly trek to the north suburbs, but the quality evidenced at this artistic oasis rivals—frequently surpasses— those of many venues more logistically accessible to deliver an evening with characters that, having made their acquaintance in these intimate quarters, you will never forget."
