"...Three actors play Helvetica at different life stages, with the bulk of scenes going to the superb Brianna Joy Ford as the writer in adolescence. Ford's scenes with Nick Strauss, who plays Helvetica's dad, are among the show's most moving. Unlike Helvetica, Strauss's character doesn't get to dismiss responsibility. He has the impossible task of explaining the world to someone who barely believes she has to live in it. That earnest clash deepens the play's uncommonly mature view of childhood. Madison Smith directs."
