“This witty and brilliantly lighthearted script by Marilyn Millstone is a cheeky look at an aging couple who aren’t quite ready to submit to the life of the down-and-out… a touching, feel-good, and overall heartfelt slice of life comedy that is just too precious for words.” —Amanda N. Gunther, Theatre Bloom, reviewing Fells Point Corner Theatre’s 2016 10x10 Festival

“[One of the] two strongest plays of the evening.” —Jeffrey Borak, The Berkshire Eagle, reviewing Barrington Stage’s 2017 10x10 Festival
