" . . Hennessy deserves a bigger audience. He has triumphantly succeeded, at least with this reviewer, in stimulating renewed interest in the work of an unusual man. He has bathed Gogol in the moon's reflected glow: the line between imagination and madness is indeed very thin."
Vera Liber, Plays International
"Stepping Out Theatre should be commended for an outstanding production and a worthy addition to its valuable body of work on mental health issues."
