“The atmosphere in director Dado’s bold staging for Trap Door Theatre is febrile and fantastic….A smart and heartfelt portrait of the interior life of a highly intelligent and desperately thwarted woman…”
- Chicago Tribune

“Dado and her cast give the evening a sense of surreal whimsy even as Nicole Wiesner makes Alice’s depression and anguish disturbingly clear. Engaged, multilevel performances underscore the characters’ passions yet preserve a deep sense of mystery…”
-Chicago Reader

“Highly theatrical and visual…Count on Trap Door to give us what no one else does…”
-Windy City Times
