The area premiere featured Leah Mazade, Stephanie Mumford, and Barbara Scheide, and was directed by Jack Sbarbori.


…understated mini-marvel at the Quotidian…flows quietly across its audience to finish with neither a whimper nor bang, but with wave after wave of recognition, on the ride home, that a substantial drama did indeed take place…(a) satisfying story that sends the theatergoer off with a lingering atmosphere of quiet hominess in which fresh discoveries succeed one another of the human gifts and grimness implicit in the script.

Cora Drake, Journal Newspapers


…quiet, evenly paced, and punctuated with little touches of light and music that add just enough dimension…to reinforce the mood of the monologues.  Scheide, Mazade, and Mumford all give heartfelt and warm performances.
