“One often hears how film is a director’s
medium, on the stage the actor is king, but
in this instance the cast has graciously
abdicated its primacy to the vision of director,
Michael Matthews, and the result is a darkly
thrilling production that manages to be
practically seamless.”


“Matthews and his remarkable forces fuse
various theatrical techniques together with
arresting results.”






“Critic’s Pick”


“Smartly directed by Michael Matthews.”

–LA Weekly

“…moves quickly under Matthews’ razor-
sharp direction.”
