"MILO & BARBARA by Daniel Guyton... has an intriguing set-up, and an ironic ending, as a husband returns home after an unexplained absence of four weeks to discover some unexpected changes have occurred. It is psychologically interesting, and gifted actors Matt Benton as Milo and Courtney Lomelo as Barbara find both the intensity and the humor, and create an intriguing portrait of a marriage leaving a lot to be desired. The work is directed by Melissa Flower, who found the energy and pace." (Jim J. Tommaney, Houston Press, 2013)
