“The playwright intelligently explores the challenges of finding emotional fulfillment in a volatile society where the rules of conduct aren’t always clear-cut. Differing views on sexual freedom, committed relationships, religious beliefs, and tolerance toward other cultures put Biribin’s motley group of high-strung souls through myriad conflicts.”
Les Spindle, Back Stage West
“Biribin deserves credit for tackling social issues and for striving for an in-depth portrait of a little guy in chaos.”
Deborah Klugman, LA Weekly
“The story blends, the story flows. But what gives it resonance is the character of Joe, magnificently portrayed by (Renato) Biribin. A combination of Redd Fox in Sanford and Son and Carroll O’Connor in All in the Family, he’s racist and a homophobe, not so much by his actions as by this kneejerk response, “Hey, some of my best friends are . . . ” He’s funny, in a brown bag way, he’s steadfast and, if he’s not exactly loyal (emotionally he still pays for an extramarital indiscretion), he’s an endearing and familiar character.

“An ‘adult’ comedy that will have you laughing from the start, this is a rude, raunchy, riotously funny play! It looks at marriage, homosexuality, and the long-enduring friendships of a group of colorfully dysfunctional people in a small New Jersey town.”
