Review

From The City Weekly, September 25 2008.

"Actually, most of the one-acts are comedies, which is to be expected in a setting where there’s not much time to build up the suspense or pathos necessary for drama. The exception was Linda Eyring’s Torrid, a conversation between a dying woman and her grandmother that veered close to, but didn’t sink into, the maudlin—partly because of fine work, again, by its actors (Clara Susan Morey II—whose humor comes across as delightfully deadpan in both her short-shorts roles—and Lindsay Marriott)."
