Beautifully written, directed and acted! Lovely intimate look at a man struggling to understand his relationship with his parents' legacy when he returns home after their passing. Tom Silcott's lovely personal portrait delivered in a jazz prose, Baldwin meets Shakespeare, directed by Jill Andre.... full review

The performance was absolutely amazing; more than I ever expected or even hoped for. It was as though the actor was a young man, an old man, a female . . . just by his expressions and voice inflection he was able to portray these different characters in an authentic way. Wow!!!... full review

I have seen a lot of theatre including one-person shows and this was one of the most moving pieces I have ever been lucky enough to witness. Thomas Silcott, with the aid of Jill Andre's exceptional staging and direction, has crafted a beautiful love letter to his parents. The beginning in rhymed verse segues into passages of dialogue, a reading from Shakespeare, a little stand-up bass playing and warm, simple strokes of impressions of his parents. Through various modes of expression and an amazingly intuitive knack for pacing and rhythm Thomas finds a way to make sense of his Father's passing. It is an exceptional piece of theatre. I look forward to seeing this piece again and any other created by the magical team of Thomas and Jill.... full review

A beautiful portrait of a couple, told through their son's memories of his parents. Just the right portions of poetry, music, culture, and history all woven together with a sure hand. No fireworks or theatrical trickery; just an honest, engaging and ultimately moving performance. Billed as a "work in progress" I'm looking forward to the next iteration.... full review
