    "Gaynor's finely wrought monologue...which is never shy on vivid detail, is an equally poetic meditation on how bodies can be torn asunder...a play full of swift, involving ideas and deep personal feeling, describing how both societies and individuals might come together or fall apart. - Peter Crawley, THE IRISH TIMES
