Here's what Joseph Papp said about the play ...

"In The Time Trial, Jack Gilhooley, another exceptional talent, presented us with a cultural experience quite different from that of the average civilized theatergoer

Yet the predicament of a gang of small town outcasts struck me as profoundly human

Speaking in a language as brutal and quick-witted as any New York street person's, they spend the day drinking and watching cars circle a race track

In many ways the play became a powerful account of lives going in circle; of drugs, sex, and `speech' going nowhere

For these people, small town America has become a raw, bloody place with no way of fitting in or getting out; a kind of destructive maze containing nothing of lasting value

It's a mordant and unsparing work written without apology and, in an odd way, aimed directly at us"
