Leaves you with a feeling of warmth and appreciation for each day...and that laughter can heal all, even the kind that comes from the painful and macabre. Miss you, Tom. Congratulations to all involved, and thank you for pouring your souls out in his honour.... full review

It seems that Tom had a very unique voice, characters, storylines and it was nice to see someone's work weaved together. Tony's piece at the end nicely wrapped up this touching tribute. ... full review

It's perhaps a bit unfortunate that the other plays were so uneven in their writing and performances that the strongest part of the show was not the playwright who passed's work, but the short play written to remember him. Still, the bittersweet conclusion sends you out with a well of emotion and overall, it's a touching tribute to a lost friend, artist, and lover.... full review
