"There’s a unique poetry in the scenic design by Lauren Helpern. The vertical set includes a forest of trees, cut from wood. As this pared down drama progresses – with scenes from family life in the kitchen and tiny living room – the towering trees seem less overwhelming and serve more like a dramatic backdrop. The rustic, authentic quality seems appropriate."
"The beautiful set design (by Lauren Helpern) and evocative lighting (Isabella Byrd and Matt Frey) keep us firmly rooted in a southern-feeling space that is somehow both cozy and menacing."
-- Exeunt Magazine
"They are all between chapters in their lives, steeped in the tension that arises when both future and past seem vague and menacing. This aura suffuses every aspect of the production, including Lauren Helpern’s stylized woodland set; Isabella Byrd and Matt Frey’s crepuscular lighting and Leah Gelpe’s sound, which abounds in the susurrus of crickets."
