… a nonstop cross-fire of crackling language, serious issues of life and art expressed in outbursts that sound like Don Rickles with a degree from the Sorbonne… Reza is a fiendishly clever writer…

NUMBERS ARE DOWN

by North Carolina playwright

Chris Shuptrine

Buckle up and stand by for 75 minutes of hilarity.... The dialogue is crisp and witty; 

the pace and the timing are impeccable. 

- TRIANGLE REVIEW

The chemistry between the two protagonists was *chef’s kiss* superb. ..... a finely honed product.... thoroughly professional and entertaining.

THE WOOLGATHERER

by William Mastrosimone

October 7-17, 2021 @ Shadowbox Studio

FOUR STARS

(S)tripped all of the varnish off a work once referred to as “a touching love story,” exposing the deep dysfunctions not only among its damaged characters, but in the culture and the times they live as well.... no one’s about to live happily ever after here. The dream at the end... can only segue into a nightmare – one that our culture, now caught in pandemic levels of trauma and domestic violence, is still struggling to wake from.
