Central Record Hails WHEN WE GO UPON THE SEA as "Impressive" and "Imaginative"

This play moves! ... the script is imaginative and perfectly rendered by this small, gifted cast. ... The play is already commissioned to play off-Broadway in June, surely a feather in the cap - and a first - for InterAct.
