"Jay O'Callahan has written and performs a solo theatrical miracle. It is as if he plumbed the emotional DNA of our family dynamics and presents it to us in a singularly gorgeous package. It could be Hamlet re-born into a 20th century Irish American family." --Samm Carleton , Choreographer
"What you achieved was the telling of a life, your uncle Mark's and his family's. It is a complex and rich life that was tragic. Who can do that? It is a beautiful piece because it is made believable through the striking simplicity of your conveying to us the complexity of Mark's life; any life. Thank you." --Rob Perkins, Author, International Filmmaker, BBC, PBS
