"Melrose gets superbly dry performances from his cast, doing full justice to this light but cunning little play riffing on theater’s capacity for channeling yearning, regret, and blank obliviousness. Cutting Ball regular Sinaiko … rocks with utter conviction."

– Robert Avila

The SF Bay Guardian​

"This provocative evening of theater is indeed it.  Eno, who’s been called a Beckett for the Jon Stewart generation, is beautifully served by Melrose and Cutting Ball’s excellent cast."

– Jean Schiffman

The San Francisco Examiner​

"Under Rob Melrose’s sensitive direction, the plays challenge us, asking what it is we hope to get out of a theatrical experience and providing, in and of themselves, a wholly satisfying answer."

– Lily Janiak

San Francisco Bay Times

"Lady Grey runs through April 10 at the Cutting Ball Theater. See it and discover why the Cutting Ball was selected as Best Theater Company by the SF Bay Guardian."

–Rhonda Shrader

Dogmom’s Dish

"Lady Grey is the latest production from Cutting Ball, a company notable for choosing difficult material and staging it with intelligence and verve…Cutting Ball shows are always worth a look. Go see it."

"Danielle O’Hare ably captures a quirky, evasively edgy quality common to many of Eno’s characters and the easy naturalism that encases the sharp, Beckettian derailments of his characters’ trains of thought. The more she draws us in to and cuts us off from her stories, the more magnetic the monologue becomes."

"Beautifully directed by Rob Melrose, Danielle O’Hare’s monologue as Lady Grey is not to be missed.  The second play, Intermission, is an absolute hoot!
