By Joe Leydon
Each member of the ensemble offers a vividly detailed performance resounding with emotional truth, delivering lengthy swaths of LaBute’s sometimes savagely furious, sometimes shocking funny dialogue with pitch-perfect degrees of intensity.

It’s minor LaBute, but nonetheless short and bittersweet.

New York Daily News

By Elizabeth Weitzman
