2 Images of scenes from the play (ALL PHOTOS BY CAROL ROSEGG)


"A DARK, scalding play [in] a SHARP New York premiere.” --The New York Times

"Mr. Belluso's … take on issues of isolation and dependence is memorable … The director, Ike Schambelan, has everyone clicking here.” --The New York Times

"A valuable reminder that the theatre world lost a potent new voice far too soon.”

“The play delves into several highly provocative issues … providing a historical perspective on the ways the disabled have been treated over the centuries, while never losing sight of the contemporary problems that the characters face. Several of the passages have a grand, lyrical quality to them, reminiscent of the passionate monologues penned by writers such as Clifford Odets and August Wilson.” --TheaterMania
