"Best of the whole bunch...played with wit and intelligence by the splendid Ben Shields" - Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune. "An appealing gift for underplaying” - Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times. “Hilarious and multidimensional, Ben Shields as Trefusis reveals a keen sense of comic timing” - Nick Green, Chicago Reader. "Gives the traditionally weak character of Malcolm a palpable, layered strength” - Luis Reyes, LA Weekly. "Endows a not always sympathetic role with genuine decency” - Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Time
