...The relationship between Nina (Alida Rose Delaney) & Polina... was one of the more tender & interesting portrayals of emerging love between women that I’ve seen recently.
— D.C. Metro Thatre Arts
Presented with Ms. Weild’s company... it puts its money where its mouth is, casting-wise, nudging us to consider more deeply the notion of artists who don’t fit the standard mold.
