"Bartlett's script eschews set, props, even touch, for the most part. However, when the actors circle one another like predatory animals, when Tuomanen reacts to the suggestion of sexual contact with a full-body quiver, or when Jarboe pantomimes disrobing by shifting his shoulders and softening his eyes into a vulnerable entreaty, well, what else do you really need?"
– Wendy Rosenfield, Philadelphia Inquirer

"It's heady stuff, and it's also a director's play – no props, no scenery, just competing ideas and a heavy dose of frisson waiting to be turned into theater.  Deborah Block, the producing artistic director of Theatre Exile, has done so elegantly, first by choosing a cast with chemistry and then by infusing the production with such intensity, it seems ready to catch fire at any moment."
– Howard Shapiro, Newsworks
