"Collette Pollard's set, a slanted road which starts at stage level and ascends to the midlevel of the theatre's back wall, flanked by screens which allow Caite Hevner's projections to take us on the many car rides, and gives us word messages about the actions and how each scene is located within the oral narrative." 

-Roy Berko, Broadway World

"Scenic and projection design by Collette Pollard and Caite Hevner, respectively, keep the play’s driving metaphor in the forefront by placing a two-lane strip of asphalt highway in the middle of the stage that runs from its edge to its rear, where the road cascades upward into the rafters. Wonderful images that establish a sense of time, place and surrealism are projected on a horizontal array of screens that surround the performance space." 

-Bob Abelman, The News-Herald
