“Thebus’ staging and the actors make the lived-in ease with which

the siblings interact go down as smoothly as the Jameson shots.”

– Kerry Reid, Chicago Tribune

“rueful, heartfelt, mostly naturalistic little drama…

very much of this moment.”

– Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times

The cast is very good, thanks to expert direction by Jessica Thebus,

bringing humor and honesty to their roles and seamlessly

making the jump between reality, memory and fantasy…

With sensitivity and lyrical beauty, Sarah Ruhl’s language

and strong, realistic characters create an emotional portrait.”

– Colin Douglas, Chicago Theatre Review

a rare treat…brims with lyricism and wit”


– Brent Ervin-Eickhoff, Picture This Post

“The play’s women are deeply compelling…

Ruhl is particular is charming as Ann, and her simple, sincere delivery

and excellent comedic timing make her a delight to watch.

Eileen Niccolai brings intelligence and honesty to the role of Wendy…

The play is a lovely piece of art, and Chicago is lucky to have it.”

– Jessie Bond, Splash Magazine

“…prolific in its subject matter and also aesthetically striking it its

presentation. The reality of the situation and the poignancy of the lines

allows the audience to trust their narrator and fly when the time comes.”

stories, and adorable dogs. I think people should go see this show.

It is such a different and interestingly beautiful play.”
