“Remarkable ... Carefully crafted and beautifully performed, with a message that always rings true — truth and trust are vital for any relationship to flourish."
--Monika Forberger, Entertainment Vancouver

“...A relationship of mutual challenge, boundless need, and reluctant revelation. The audience rides a see-saw as we witness first one, then the other, reveal the demons that are defeating them”
--Christian Steckler, Review Vancouver

"... D’Hondt has infused the play with laugh-out-loud lines, particularly with Hunter. Humour is her coping mechanism and she delivers it with fantastic flare ..."
-- Keely Kwok, The Charlebois Post
