“Rapp’s dialogue is beautiful mayhem, full of mudslops and dogsnakes and hog gravy, and we care just enough about these strange souls to be devastated by their pain…it jolts and haunts all involved in its happy amoralism.”

The New Yorker

“A furious assault on the senses — in the most cathartic way possible.”

Theater Mania

“This is a theatrical meeting made in heaven.”

New York Post

“Has the infectious energy of a major event in New York theater history.”
