"...We do whatever we can to survive grief, we can never get over it, only get through it and hope to feel it less acutely as time passes. But it never leaves us. Perhaps there is a way to let it be, to understand that it is necessary for us to feel it, if we want to remember love. Bravo to Mr Chanchez for creating this elegant and very human moment for us to share the possibility."

"...Chanchez reveals in his playbill note that he “wrote this play as a form of therapy for us all.” Good Mourning definitely feels like a therapy session, guided by imaginary prompting from the chorus of stuffed animals. And that’s why this play lags in pace overall, despite a few engrossing stories. Ernest’s journey out of isolation is primarily internal. His eyes are almost always on the floor or on the toy a couple feet in front of him, making it difficult for the audience to connect with him despite the small theatre space. While this self-reflection is wholly worthwhile for any individual experiencing loss, it feels too self-indulgent and inwardly focused to create the audience-performer bond that makes solo performance captivating."
