Gail M. Burns: This is a most satisfying play theatrically and emotionally. This is a play about healing, which can be an agonizingly slow and uneventful process in real life, but which Herzog crafts into a suspenseful narrative with characters we really come to care about. Peterson has assembled a top-notch cast…There is no better theatre for the money available now in the region. Fans of Herzog…


Larry: …and first class theatre…


Gail: …should not miss this opportunity!
