- Conor McShane:6 Dec. 2021“ The worldbuilding in this play is fantastic, suggesting a highly plausible future world where we may have solved aging but are still forced to confront the end of our existence. The hyper-sterile world suggests that without aging, life loses much of its meaning, without much use for art or poetry. The play presents some fascinating ethical dilemmas: aging is a natural part of life, but can bring a great deal of suffering; wouldn't we try to prevent it if we could? Portman's sensitive writing and masterful control of language make this a truly stunning play I'd love to see. ”
- Cheryl Bear:5 Jul. 2021“ A powerful look at aging, our fears around it and the toll that takes on us. Well done. ”
- Hope Villanueva:6 Jun. 2020“ A completely fascinating musing on the future and aging (and not aging) that still manages to remain personal and human. It's possible to see each character's struggle clearly, making it impossible to take sides in the play's central debate: Is it better to age or stay forever young? I'd love to see this play in production, as well, and learn what a good group of designers will do with the future technology elements. ”
