“An intense, intermissionless 80 minutes, ANY NIGHT confirms DualMinds as one of the most fertile new companies around.” —vancouverplays
“Part thriller, part psychological study, part hallucination, and totally engaging. Grabs us from the start and never lets go.” — Toronto NOW
“a phantasmagoric thriller about old problems unfolding in new ways…the play, like countless news stories published everyday, warns us about potential dangers of the digital age. However, by anchoring these dangers in a particular relationship, ANY NIGHT shows us that our real fears do not revolve around gadgets but rather questions of trust, security, privacy, and a shared reality.” – Theatre Is Easy
