"Among the best work I've seen at Piven over the years...this rather haunting little show leaves you feeling that not a moment of your time was wasted, and the connections in this famous little Evanston studio are, at present, running deep."- Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

"What's not said is as important as what is in Julia Cho's spare, moving tale about a linguist suddenly finding himself at a loss for words when his marriage starts to falter. That makes it perfect for theater, as director Polly Noonan ably shows in this well-paced, finely acted production. " - Jack Helbig, Chicago Reader
