|"The play finds delightfully fresh comedy in the largely ignored province of midlife romance. Hilfinger observes the relationship between parents and children with honesty and humor, and leavens the realism with fantasy: as a means to explore her romanitc mistakes, Elaine (the protagonist) imagines herself as her favorite fictional heroines, from Tolstoy's Anna to Cathy in Wuthering Heights. Hilfinger's wit and skill seldom flag-- she is definitely a talent to watch."
