"An astonishingly powerful performance balanced breathtakingly on the edge of out-of-control ... Playwright Arnold's several themes -- creativity, dependency, sexual potency -- are threaded together with a gratifying precision of emotion and intent ... Among the most mature and compelling Gay plays staged so far this year -- an intelligent work for intelligent audiences, produced with professional flair. That makes it rare indeed."

--- Richard Labonte, Update

 "Excellent ... Completely captures the audience with its intensity and power."

--- Sandy Dwyer, The News

"Truly devastating ... C.D. Arnold's elegiac drama never alludes directly to AIDS, but the disease hovers like a phantom presence in the household in San Francisco where the story takes place ... Written straight from the heart."

--- Susan Armine, Reader

"Sharply felt ... A strong sense of time and place and a fully textured and convincing performance by Steven Patterson as the entitled hard-leather figure and sulky playboy of the male world ... Director-designer John Sowle puts you right there inside a tattered Victorian house south of Market Street in San Francisco."

--- Ray Loynd, Los Angeles Times

"Heartbreaking ... A riveting play that should find a large audience seeking more than standard sitcom fare ... This production shows what can be done with a small budget and a large imagination."

--- Lee Melville, Drama-Logue

"Horrifying -- and effective ... John Sowle has directed each scene on the nose ... Demonstrates that sensational material can be handled with power and restraint."

--- Gray, Daily Variety
