"...where this company dug up such marvellous and contrasting costumes is beyond me."

"The story’s best known in its film adaptation by Alfred Hitchcock, but there’s some point in seeing the theatrical original, especially in Bygone Theatre’s site-specific staging at North York’s Gibson House Museum...Under director and costume designer Emily Dix, the visual details, including millinery by David Dunkley, are generally understated but impressive. She’s also given the action a local flavour with mentions of Upper Canada College, Yonge Street and Rosedale. Most importantly, she generally keeps the tension taut: will someone discover what’s in the trunk?"

"The supporting cast are excellent: Matt McGrath’s dandyish Kenneth is the perfect partner for Chelsey MacLean’s note-perfect Lelia, a bubbling and coquetteish flapper gal with lips for days and eyeliner to match."

"the character work is outstanding, particularly MacLean’s (Chelsey L MacLean) high-spirited modern bohemian, Stetson’s (Leete Stetson) sinister schoolboy, and a few blink-and-you’ll-miss-‘em flourishes from Elizabeth R. Morriss’ (Elizabeth Morriss) Miss Kentley." -Mike Anderson, Mooney On Theatre

"Stetson brings an increasingly frenetic fervour to the murderer that nicely balances Child’s cold, analytical surmises...Matthew McGrath has charm as another party guest, while Chelsey MacLean adds a touch of flapper raciness to the production." - Jon Kaplan, NOW Magazine
