Timing is everything and director Carol Dorn has skillfully guided the cast to execute their lines for maximum effect. The audience roared with laughter throughout the evening.

"...but the actors bring humanity and genuineness to such two-dimensional archetypes with guidance and adjustments from director Carol Dorn, who freshens the material a bit for the present era of technology, sex positivity, and elder disability." - Hamlethub, Brewster, NY
