Reviews

"Award winning playwright Doug Delaney turns the brackish water of human tragedy into the sparkling wine of high comedy...Avery J. Coping explores the dark side of a fatal illness, illuminating it with wit, wisdom and lyric cadence." - Ponte Vedra Recorder

"Drives a comedic stake through the ugly black heart of small town Americana, with its backwater mores, archaic ideals and neurotic characters. It is a thought provoking play that is also very funny and endearing. Delancy has injected guffaw producing humor into a serious play with such finesse, he effectively drives home his premise without pretension." - First Coast Entertainer
