The Fringe Festival is amazing because it allows for these kinds of underground plays to find a stage and come to life. If there's a story somewhere it has a place here. Ryan Lisman always explores taboo topics in surprising ways. He's bold and unapologetic in his writing and that's very refreshing. This story is something I could never have imagined I would ever see on stage and THAT is something I enjoy. Actually being surprised by something. The actors are all fantastic, committed to their roles and unwavering.... full review

Overall, it was an enjoyable watch and a little refreshing on the storytelling topics. A real must see of a play.... full review

The performers all fulfill their roles well, especially Stall and Woodley, whose edgy relationship is essential to the piece. Lisman’s direction is effective, particularly during the surreal fantasy sequences.... full review

I loved this weird, intriguing, wonderfully uncomfortable play. A play that may seem like a family drama quickly becomes so much more, exploring the complicated relationship we have with our own desires, what makes us want what we want, how we manipulate those we love and ultimately learning through loss. Shades of Neil LaBute at his best. Bombs are dropped so casually they feel both shocking and inevitable. Also, it's funny. The laughs are often of the "Wait - am I supposed to be laughing?" sort - you know, the best kind. This play will mesmerize and confound you, it will seduce and enrage you, it will capture you for 90 minutes and you will not be able to look away. Ryan Lisman is a talented writer with a unique voice and vision. I c... full review
