“Whitney Morse, another area actress who has impressed in past productions (from Jedlicka’s “Accomplice” to Pride Films and Plays‘ “The Children’s Hour”) adds the role of German-born Eva to her varied resume. Without making Eva a caricature, Ms. Morse offers just enough hint of dialect to make her character convincing. She easily conveys everything this role demands, from supportive friend to smoldering sexpot. Once again Whitney Morse demonstrates what a surprising and versatile young actress she’s become in a short time. In my book, she is  an artist to watch.” – Colin Douglas, Chicago Theatre Review Full Review “Carey Lee Burton and Whitney Morse portray their long suffering wives. They both capture the fear and loneliness of women whose husbands are gone for months at a time.   Burton provides some of the most emotional moments in the play. We can relate to her as she goes from failed project to failed project, trying to find meaning in her life beyond her marriage.   Whitney Morse is the worldly Eva, a German who just wants more excitement in her mundane life. Her German accent is excellent- and she has a warm presence on stage.” – Drew Wanket, Chicago Stage Standard Full Review
