QUOTES OF NOTEAnd Slowly Beauty
“And Slowly Beauty is a complex, infinitely rich play … The script’s virtuoso ability to balance humour and drama is particularly fine.”
– Victoria Times Colonist
“And Slowly Beauty is no simple kitchen-sink drama. There is much laughter in unexpected places and some deftly directed movements that quicken the interplay of action and ideas. Like Mr. Mann at the theatre, ‘we were transported’.”
– Globe and Mail
