Press for DNA:

"The standout feature of this production is James Tarpey, in the role of Adam... I immediately felt a strong emotional connection with the character. The role is relatively brief, but Tarpey's delivery is so infectiously emotive that it lingers in the scenes following his exit."  Hanna Gilbert, Everything-Theatre
