A man waits in a train station for an alien.
A Visionary, or Crazed, Tale... The strength of Leahy's play...is its fervent belief in something better than the standardized hurly-burly of our modern lives."
The Washington Post
This is one of the most impressive shows I've seen at Fringe... At face value, it’s about a guy who’s probably crazy, but may not be, waiting in a New York subway station for an alien. But it’s also about much, much more. It’s about the way we humans interact with each other on a day-to-day basis. It’s about having faith, in your convictions, in your senses, in your loved ones. It’s about the universe, and everything in it. And to be able to cover all that ground and still pull it off is certainly worth the wait.

The Chicago Reader
An engaging meditation on mysticism, madness, and the confusion between the two.... Lovely, poetic language... Never is the play boring... The acting is outstanding... A haunting and worthwhile look at madness from the inside.
DC Metro Theater Arts
...A show that's got talent to burn... Brian McDonald as Tristan handles the character's psychospiritual flips with a natural dexterity...Ensemble work is nearly seamless... a show you may find yourself musing on in odd moments.
Smooth dialogue, meaningful transitions, engaging characters and a believable story... Uses music skillfully and with purpose... Strong supporting actors help drive both humor and action...the play asks good questions and is good theater to boot.
