“Jesse Eisenberg has written his biggest play to date, and his most interesting. . . . the kind of work audiences should enjoy, and have more of.”
- The New Yorker
“‘[A] terrific, fast-talking, quick-witted serious comedy . . . beautifully written . . . Eisenberg writes funny, but he is also a real storyteller—moody and dangerous and even loving.”
