    You know the old saying, "you don't really know a man until you've spent the night handcuffed to him in the desert." Even after you wake up, even after a long car ride together, it still takes a conversation. Among Tony and Alex's skills, conversation is at the top of the list. Williams gives us two guys who are more or less on the same side but are still cautious. This is true of their circumstances and their conversation. A delight to read out loud and a gift for actors, the play presents a lovely nascent friendship.

    A nice, quirky, funny departure from Philip Middleton Williams' other pieces and a solid buddy comedy. This unlikely pair is appealing, humorous, and empathetic. And you can't stop reading.

    A heartfelt dialogue in an unlikely place being had by two unlikely men about an unlikely subject. Other playwrights wouldn't be able to pull those disparate parts together, but Philip Middleton Williams isn't other playwrights. He creates a hilarious circumstance and shifts it subtly toward the more serious and more deeper exploration of fatherhood, regret, addiction, and shame. It's a lovely two-hander that will stay with you after reading or seeing this show.

    Philip Middleton Williams pairs two unlikely people in a desert, and what follows is a hopeful and comedic exchange that discusses art, life, and their futures endeavors. It’s a play that’s simply excellent; a blend of the minimalist found in the absurd, but delivered with this maximum exuberance found in Williams’s writing style. On top of all of this, “Tucumcari Tonite!” would be very easy to stage and produce, which is an added bonus to an already fantastic script. Any writers who are looking to do a lot with a little should consider reading this script.

    What a delightful, funny, and unexpectedly sweet buddy comedy. Williams’ always engaging way with characters and quips is on full display here, as his talent for layering poignant longing underneath the surface bravado. A field day for two actors, this is a wonderful one act play I'd love to see staged.
