It’s a new and wonderful adventure each time, a story of outcasts, their caretaker, and the friendship and love they find with each other.

— Ryo Yamaguchi, Michigan Quarterly Review [ ]

The characters, ideas, story are exposed, raw, alive — merging masculine and feminine into some kind of mystical marriage.

— Erin Rollman & Brian Colonna, Buntport Theater

I was just digging everything, and didn’t want the night to be over.

— Sam O’Daniel, Your Older Brother [ ]
