Reviews & Response:
     “A tightly-wound domestic tragedy…freshly relevant...dares to ask important questions about faith, death and survival.”—Salt Lake Tribune
     “May well be the best thing Carol Lynn Pearson has ever written…[in her] eloquent, tightly written script…there is very little finger-pointing, but plenty of fodder for healthy debate.” –Deseret Morning News

“The theatre was packed with so much emotion....  Every one there, I'm sure, had a story--of pain, of betrayal, of confusion, of sacrifice and the struggle for love.  They were looking to find redemption, hope, and searing honesty, no matter what the cost.  Thank you for holding nothing back.  You never let up, except for an occasional gift of humor so we could breath. There was a shared compassion that held us in a place beyond words.  It was an amazing experience to be part of.”  --Jan
