“Evan Linder, who recently wowed audiences in Theater Wit’s quirky “The Antelope Play,” as well as in Broken Nose Theatre’s “At the Table,” is thoroughly impressive as Sam. His emotional honesty and ability to create a realistic, imperfect, multilayered character, who has his own flaws, is excellent.”
Chicago Theatre Review

“Wright’s characters are engaging and carefully observed throughout (and brought compellingly to life in director Georgette Verdin’s beautifully acted production for Interrobang), and the script’s numerous brutal monologues are stunning.”
Chicago Reader

”The acting, guided by Verdin, is dynamic and impassioned… Linder’s ability to get us to see through the mask as Sara does is what shapes his character. It almost seems that we understand Sam better than he understands himself, and that’s a tribute to the actor, who manages to make us care for his character despite his persistent anger and self-revulsion.”

“Under Georgette Verdin’s divine direction this heavenly hit is impeccably cast. As Sam, Linder strikes a bewitching balance between brooding and endearing.”

“The cast is superb. Evan Linder (At the Table and Byhalia, Mississippi) plays the NASA engineer as the strong voice of logic and science.”
