Weiss, Hedy. "Play about cheating is fairly
brilliant." Chicago Sun-Times,
13 February 2008 [Quote: "The three principal actors
are impeccable in every way, but so is the supporting cast -- the
delicious Ann Wakefield as Gillian's worldly wise French mother
and Katie McLean, briefly stealing the show, as a brashly comic
former girlfriend. Bloody good all around"].
