"Daniel Guyton's THE GRIM RAPER takes its own comic barroom scene, but chillingly reverses all audience allegiances by transforming an abstraction of Death into a commonplace but horrific vision of evil." (William Demastes, Applause Theatre & Cinema Books, 2014)

"Okay. "There issssssss no Springgggg Breakkk. Onnnnnly deattttthhhhhhh." is an actual line from this play. Like most of Guyton's plays, it is extremely well-written. The dialogue is indeed superb... and it is funny for like 98 percent of the play. But the ending will mess with you. Read it if you enjoy comedies with a horrible [yet sadly true] ending." (Bryan Stubbles, New Play Exchange, 2018)
