4 STARS "The irony is that the content of this one act play - it's just 30 minutes - by acclaimed American author Ara Watson, is trumped by two splendid performances from Payton Hogan, a Flinders Uni undergrad, and Eva Frick, an Elder Conservatorium graduate . . . Slowly, but very noticeably, they fashion an edgy, spine tingling atmosphere of disdain, mistrust and hidden empathies."
