“The Brown/Trinity MFA production captures the exciting energy of his vision with two fine performances and highly creative staging… Tan has a very clear vision, and it serves to keep what could become confusing multiple storylines straight. It is highly competent and assured direction, and speaks volumes about both Tan’s skill and the quality of the Brown/Trinity training program.¬†Particularly impressive is Tan’s use of the environment…

“This is not an easy show to produce; in less competent hands, one could easily lose an audience in its multiple digressions. But here, sure direction and fine performances keep us anchored to the thread of reality that winds through them all: the verity of love, the anguish of loss, and the deeply human challenge of choice.”
