Lisa Pelikan's 'night, Mother Reviews 

CRITIC’S PICK!  THOUGHTFUL, THOROUGH DIRECTION STIRRING PERFORMANCES! The two actors mesmerize us… Memorable gripping night of theatre. A HYMN TO LIFE!” 
Back Stage West

ACCOMPLISHED PRODUCTION!  Masterfully drawn… darkly comic, ultimately wrenching… Abbott and Tilney are estimable in their determination, harrowing at the climax. A SOLID REVIVAL.” 
Los Angeles Times

LISA PELIKAN DIRECTS A RICH, CAREFULLY CALIBRATED PRODUCTION… fine, faithful performances.” - RECOMMENDED 
L.A. Weekly

UNDER THE COMPASSIONATE AND REALISTIC DIRECTORIAL CHOICES OF LISA PELIKAN, THESE TWO REMARKABLE ACTRESSES SHINE! … This is serious stuff loaded with heart and insight.” 
The Tolucan Times

METICULOUS DIRECTION FROM LISA PELIKAN and emotionally-taut performances from Annie Abbott and Rebecca Tilney make this A MUST SEE!
