In SB, the reviewer found that Quaas had 'directed the horrific confrontation between mother (Monika Hildebrand) and daughter (Angela Schlabinger) with a salutary restraint.'
Bistra Klunker in DNN thought that Angela Schlabingers corpse pale Eva was a bit too pious in the beginning of the play and a bit too hysterical by the ending.
The ending, according to Gabriele Gorgasi in SB, with the sudden leaving of Charlotte and Eva's explaining letter brought some hope into the darkness, 'Also for the retarded Helena (Anna Böhm), who find her 'voice' by the piano and the silent Erik (Thomas Förster) who still hopes for the love of Eva.'
