"This is a warm, rich play full of that compassion and understanding and that simple poetry of the heart that is Mr. Williams at his shining, gentle best."
—The New York Times
"…a powerful, more often than not heart-rending tale of a spinster undone by dreams…some moments exhale a poetry beyond description."
