    A taut, tense thriller that will keep you guessing - and gasping - till the last page. Kudos to playwright Jennifer O'Grady, who writes with such compassion for her women characters, even when they commit terrible acts. The sparseness of the dialogue, the evocative setting of New York City, the slow reveal of Janie's story - and the multiple twists along the way will keep you engaged till end of play. I can't wait to see this produced.
