Michael Coulombe pens a powerful story that is often times poetic and flowing in its narrative of a woman who feels a name change now better reflects her real self.

Director Hector Rodriguez has good staging notions, such as bringing departed characters into bas-relief against the survivors. What his cast lacks in technique, it makes up for in sincerity.
David C. Nichols – Backstage
Though it’s a small play in a small theater, it packs a huge emotional punch. The show feels so authentic and real at times you almost forget you are watching actors playing their roles.

Although Director Hector Rodriguez does a great job understanding the material and drawing memorable performances out of his actors, he misses the mark by opting for a realistic and mostly amateur set and light design. As memories always are, this play begs to be sparse, jagged, ethereal, wispy, and like Eve herself, liberated from the natural world.
