Media Reviews

"Intelligent and provoking … Gilman has created a couple whose degeneracy is the vehicle for a searing analysis of moral codes, sexual abuse, fear, love, poverty and the value of a life." -The Sunday Times

"Plays don’t come much tougher, or more compassionate." -The Guardian

"Psychological shrewdness and on-target language." -New York Magazine
