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

A heart-warming tribute to a man who was obviously loved by many. Sincere performances and a lot of humor. A genuine exploration of human idiosyncrasies that all come together to paint a picture of a man who seemed incredibly in tune with the questions we seek but often can't find.... 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

The thrust of the production -- to honor a playwright who has passed by putting on a selection of his works -- was a sweet and aching one. And you could feel the grief and sense of loss throughout, but most particularly in the epilogue, which was the most successful part of the show. 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.

An hour of warmth, exploration, the kindness of Tom's heart, weaving a quilt of what he may have been thinking in his unpublished works. So proud of this company for having the courage to put these on their feet. Extraordinary performances from Marisa O'Brien, Darryl Armbruster and Cheryl Huggins. The end left me in tears, as Tony Foster completely wrapped up the show in an unexpected, clever and heartfelt way. ... full review

A fantastic experience of the works of the late Tom Stanczyk. The one-acts were all very enjoyable and quite professional, with what I thought was a deep and wonderful impression of a man I didn't know. I felt like at the end of the play, I did know a part of him and I felt the loss of a playwright as well as a friend. ... full review
