"This Wide Night" Review, East Hampton Star, Winter 2016

"She’s mostly hiding her pain as she leaves, but once she’s out the door there is a final stab of terrible sorrow etched on her face. What was fascinating was that this moment was invisible to the audience, except, by accident, to me. Lorraine is into the hall and gone, the scene is over, and yet the actress is still going, still working, or too lost in the moment to care whether we can see her or not."
"Ms. Dirksen wrests every drop of emotion from the scene, though without a hint of mawkishness or sentimentality."
