"...uniformely fine acting." - The New York Times
"Without preaching, Mosel presents a heart-wrenching portrait of people in deep crisis, and in its exquisite production (the first New York revival of the play since its 1961 Broadway run), the Transport Group honors every one of them." - Variety
"This is realism with a touch of Robert Wilson in it." - The Village Voice
"The scene in which this aged creature (in a magnificent performance from Irma St. Paule) briefly holds the boy and then silently weeps when he is taken away from her is hardly the defining moment of Mosel's drama. But in the stunning staging of their encounter, it is the most moving one." - Variety
