"It’s worth driving home how remarkable Van Wyck’s performance is knowing she just finished her lead role in Two Minutes to Midnight while also co-running Assembly and her own indie company One Four One Collective — Huns’ Shelley and Midnight’s Tracy are vastly different characters, and Van Wyck’s fleshed them both out well."
