"Must-see show of the fall season" —Jerry Wasserman, The Vancouver Sun
"Funny, heartbreaking, and deeply human" —Kathleen Oliver, The Georgia Straight
"Profound and daring theatre" —Jo Ledingham, The Vancouver Courier
"When it ended I still wanted more" —Colin Thomas, colinthomas.ca
"Refreshingly not main stream or predictable" —Baird Blackstone, BrokenLeg Reviews
"Loved the play. Laughed many times. I found myself looking back fondly on my many blue-collar jobs. Characters were complex and flawed. The performances were wonderful across the board. I would single out Haig Sutherland, who, in my opinion, had the most challenging role. His performance and the character were dead on."
"I thought it was a powerful, very thought-provoking play. It felt like the first time I saw Waiting for Godot, which was long and slow and one had to really invest thought into it. I was, however, surprised how the three hours flew by and how soon the lights went up and the actors came down to take their praise. And those actors were amazing, all four in fact, and I was captivated by their journey and the ability to make us believe in their lives, as disparate as they were. A proud piece of work to share with some out-of-towners who were here."
"This play was of unusual quality and the actors were up to the job. I was deeply touched by both the play and this performance of it."
—Patricia, New Westminster
"We were very impressed with the performance. Although long, it was captivating. The acting was excellent, the writing masterful."
"Great actors! It was simple, yet with lots of volume and a very well put together play—acting was incredible, set, audio and lighting was great too!!!"
"I enjoyed the show tremendously, and contrary to reviews I had read, in which there was talk of the uncomfortable silences, I felt they were totally important, and added to the message"
