This terrific new play by Clare Barron...offers a hilarious and painfully affecting blend of oddball dialogue, beautifully observed family dynamics, and a preoccupation with the weird ways of the body... Barron’s special genius lies in the deep dividends she derives from small talk.
— The New Yorker
[Barron’s] play... blends off-beat, sometimes raunchy comedy into a slowly fused drama...
— New York Times
