‘Sparks fly spectacularly in this drama by the American writer Catherine Trieschmann… The play is gripping, disturbing and relevant… Trieschmann’s writing is taut and laced with irony’ **** – The Times
‘Catherine Trieschmann’s gripping three-hander is very much in a tradition of American issue plays… the cleverness of this piece – snappily directed by Des Kennedy with an effective design by Alyson Cummins – is that its central drama is not about science versus creationism, but about faith and faithlessness, the gap between east-coast liberalism and small-town America, and about the way we dismiss other people’s points of view.’ – Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
