Barry Scott as JJ and Chip Arnold as Mark

“Arnold and [Barry] Scott are justly admired actors who’ve both put four decades of their lives into their artistic work. Here they play with each other using vivid expression without visible artifice. Putting [playwright] Reyland’s marvelous words into the mouths of two such masterful performers provides entertainment that enlightens and enthralls.”

“Arnold offers a sincere portrayal of Mark, a good Samaritan who steps in to help JJ even as he struggles with his own insecurities and disappointments. He carefully walks the line between devotion and frustration, allowing each of JJ’s setbacks to register fully on his face.”
