“Steppenwolf ensemble member Molly Regan…cast it impeccably…Krag, lean and taut, is just the right counterpoint to Hamman’s overt, sometimes inadvertently funny nutcase. And Spence, a dark beauty, has expertly captured the strained speech and behavior of her damaged character. And designer John Dalton’s marvelous architectural set will have you fantasizing about coming up with a down payment.”
Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times
