"While other theaters offer up sugar plums and Christmas carols during the lucrative holiday theater season, [Park Square Theatre is] presenting a play that tackles weighty issues of family dynamics and dementia."
Minnesota Theater Love
"If you would like a taste of real-life family drama this holiday season, that feels familiar but is likely more entertaining than your own, spend a few hours with the Shealy family in West Philly via downtown St. Paul."
Cherry and Spoon
"This show may be filled with drama, a little too much in my opinion, but it is also very funny. The show was able to have you deeply feeling for a character in one moment, and laughing in the next. The balance held throughout this show is artfully handled."
Twin Cities Stages
"Cynthia Jones-Taylor is remarkable in this role as Dot. She is able to convey so many emotions - seeming simplicity, heartbreak, laughter, confidence, fear, and more - and she makes Dot such a winning force in the show and so much more complex than what might otherwise seem to be a crazy old woman."
