DAN PREVETTE certified reviewer June 23, 2023
Like a toxic relationship, this show keeps sucking you back in even though you know it's probably going to hurt. Brimming with biting humor as salty as a cup of coffee, this show is helmed magnificently by the pair of leads who leave no emotional scab unscratched. Will they? Won't they? Who cares, it's fascinating and entertaining to watch.... full review

And what does this mean? What will the future look like? The writing gives these great ping pong punches between the couple that end with one last volatile insult thrown by the man or woman that forces a pause. A time out for a brief moment in the verbal boxing match. I kept waiting for the rise in tension between the actors and emotional outbursts, ... full review
