"...Corbin does a convincing job of sketching the particulars and peculiars of sorority life, but some scenes are too brief, ineffective, and donít propel the narrative. The pivotal element in Clara and Kathyís volatile relationship, replete with so much irony, should have been explored with more sophistication and depth; in fact, the play would have had more resonance had the inner lives of these characters been scripted with greater clarity. Clara and Kathyís ill-fated confrontation towards the end doesnít hold much of a surprise. There is undeniable substance to the plot here, but this script needs a careful rewrite."
