ANDREA FINLAYSON certified reviewer June 12, 2017
Went to see this show with my sister and was pleased to find out it was a show involving sisters with some very interesting plot twists. Drama and comedy all in one compact, tightly-written and wonderfully-acted show! Lots of funny and poignant moments as well. Would love to see more from everyone in the cast! ... full review

The sisters are embroiled in an outrageous and bizarre circumstance but are relatable in their dealings. As improbable as and remote as the scenario may seem, I was drawn in and connected by the sibling dynamic and the complexities that can bring. It is rare to find moving dramatic moments in a piece that could be characterized as dark comedy sci-fi. Highly recommended!... full review
ROB LYNCH certified reviewer June 17, 2017
Thoughtful, fun, timely, funny. In a day and age where it's easier to numb than deal with life, A Void takes a particularly interesting viewpoint on how we could handle our trials and tribulations, while poking fun at them at the same time.... full review

Suicide is such a permanent solution. What if you could cryogenically freeze yourself instead? It’s temporary and you can be in a comfortable sleep until all your problems pass. “A Void” shows us the pros and cons of this solution via two sisters. Judith (played by Rachel Sondag) has made her decision to freeze herself and gives all the reasons why. Rita (played by Mary Holland) tries to convince her to deal with her problems, but instead, rethinks her own way of handling life’s challenges. This show is more than just taking an easy way out and not dealing with your problems. It’s also about sibling rivalry and competition between sisters. It’s about family and the dynamic of each person within. The conversations the sisters have is so... full review
RUSSELL EATON http://www.myhauntlife.com certified reviewer June 20, 2017
I complement the lead actresses of this show with an odd observation - I was extremely uncomfortable watching this show. The two women create a family dynamic as sisters that is incredibly honest, effective, and completely believable. The relationship, already awkward in vibe, gets more uncomfortable as the play unfolds. Every head turn, every condescending sideways glance conveys years of frustration and competition between these two women. The mildly sci-fi elements of the plot becomes the excuse for way too much honesty to come flooding out of both women. Their verbal interaction is the heart of the show, and it succeeds incredibly well. I felt like I was eavesdropping on something I shouldn’t hear. The humor is amped up by the absurd... full review

Oh my, did I LOVE this show. It was so interesting and coldly haunting. The relationships between the characters are so dynamic and interesting. I loved the space the actors took to create realistic and compelling moments. ... full review
