"O’Neill aficionados will welcome the chance to see this play staged, and Wessels’ haunting, attentive production serves it well."
–Alex Ramon, Reviews Hub, on Fog
“Director Grace Wessels has teased an emotionally connected line between her cast members that celebrates itself on stage and beams between scenes.”
