“A compelling ensemble… Created with such delicate intensity that it feels as if the audience itself is holding its breath”The Irish Times

“A startlingly confident new Irish play… Ni Riain has hit the ground running… “ Evening Echo, Cork

“Anyone interested in serious theatre writing should flock to this perfectly formed miniature.” – The Herald

“A perfectly-pitched 45 minutes of theatre that features heart-stopping performances…it promises a fine future for a writer who has only recently turned to theatre, after an early career as a composer that has clearly influenced every breath and intonation of this intense and musical piece of drama.” – The Scotsman.
