"The characters, plot-lines and direction, veer way to safe instead of embracing the weird artistic style in my view. The atmosphere stayed stagnant and the acting was too sedated."

"After this theatrical climax, an extended dénouement reveals much, and some of the mystery of the equation, 1=0, becomes less obscure."

"There are several instances of unlikely coincidences or seemingly arbitrary events which prove convenient for the playwright but are hardly convincing. Ruth and Hilyard both do the best they can with their roles, but they can’t save this play. "
