"Savage lyricism ... vivacious staging ... a hillbilly storm beneath that ol’ sickled leopard’s-tooth moon." - Ben Brantley, The New York Times

"Magnificently acted, beautifully written ... a jolt of dark energy. The murkily-clad backwoods characters who crouch and circle beside and behind us create a nearly constant frisson of anxiety. The scuffed-up pile of real dirt sends its earthy odor into our nostrils, waking our animal instincts ... Half the time I wasn’t sure what was real and what was fantasy or dream. Yet the story held me from start to finish." - Jon Sobel, Blog Critics

"This is great theater.  A stunning theatrical experience ... a play about life’s fundamental elements, its physicality, the bones beneath the skin, about the closeness of life and death, of creation and dirt. A powerful script, over-the-top imaginative staging, dance movement and singing — a psychedelic, if grungy, wholeness and encounter with essential truth." - Yvonne Korshak, Let's Talk Off Broadway
