"Playwright Bob Glaudini presents a story that emanates intense drama and human emotion." - Show Business Weekly
"Set in Harlem, Mr. Glaudini’s modest, quietly moving drama offers a needed corrective to flashier, more widely disseminated depictions of the meaner streets of Manhattan...Mr. Glaudini is too honest an observer to stoop to easy moralizing. But in showing how those who fall into the underworld withdraw from the embrace of friends and family, he finds a potent image to illustrate the dehumanizing effects of drugs." - The New York Times
