"Ia Ensterä's chaotic set design is fabulous... The McCallum black box theatre is small and so intimate that you have the impression that you're a next door neighbor perched on the fence, watching the transformations of that emblematic Idaho farm family."
"This cast is breath-takingly good, and Tutto Theatre has made them even better with the phenomenally good set design by Ia Ensterä..."
"On this night the first surprising impression in this black box was the sight of the exploding set by Ia Enstera. The house left end of the set and the upper wall of the upstage center house wall seem to explode upward and away like a slow-motion film of a tornado lifting effortlessly the logs of a log cabin one log at a time. This frozen explosion is the perfect metaphor for the family in the house below. That family not only exploded in 1949, the time of the play, but they are still exploding, as does every family today."
