    What the popular press said...

    "Amiable, scruffy, erratic, well-intentioned, full of promise and self-sabotaging."
    Ben Brantley for New York Times

    "He’s (Jake Gyllenhaal) touching, funny and completely convincing as Uncle Terry, a scruffy man-boy chronically adrift, profane, bad with boundaries, but with a good heart. In short, Terry is far from perfect but likable. The same goes for this 90-minute one-act by British playwright Nick Payne."
    Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

    "You can over-direct this Family Dysfunction 101 class all you want, but it just looks like someone wearing clothes three sizes too big.”
    Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "A riveting evening of theater"
    Erik Haagensen for Back Stage

    "About a very dull, moderately dysfunctional family. The actors are little help in fleshing things out."
    Robert Feldberg for The Record

    "The British import ... is as forgettable as the performances in this engaging new play are memorable."
    Roma Torre for NY1

    "Disappointingly subsides into a so-what conclusion following its splashy climax."
    Michael Sommers for Newsroom Jersey

    "The trouble with Michael Longhurst’s production for Roundabout Theatre Company is that it’s been directed to death."
    David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter

    "Blistering domestic drama."
    Marilyn Stasio for Variety
