"Maggie Cronin's capacity to delight and to chill an audience in the turn of a phrase makes for a fine night's entertainment" Belfast News Letter
"Cronin is clearly a writer. Her play is intelligent, inventive, playful and blessed with the Irish gift for vividly descriptive language."
Damien Jaques, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
"A brave, bold, free spirited show of enormous dramatic power."
Lyn Gardner, City Limits
"Cronin has fashioned a play that is delicate, funny and richly textured... With a few simple props - a battered suitcase, a white silk sheet which doubles as a table cloth, a wedding dress and a billowing ship's sail - Grace's free spirit is evoked."
Helen Meany, Irish Times
