"Director Annabel Heacock leads a production teetering on melodrama with a steady hand...Rather than take a magic realism tirade approach to make some Greater Evil toward a community palatable, Hakvaag and Heacock lean into the hyperrealistic oxymoron of a generation resigned yet rebellious toward the hand they’ve been dealt." - Broadway DNA Blog
