Press for THE MAD ONES

"This is one of the most smoothly functional theatrical metaphors youíll have seen in a while, a great, small play about decline and denial and the subtler, unspoken bonds of devotion. Without a crumb of optimism, Samuel & Alasdair is still a spot of warmth in a cold world."

-Scott Brown
New York Magazine

"...daffy and chilling." (3 stars for
Samuel & Alasdair)
