"The performance is fast paced and moves us between the two stories in an entertaining way, with director Kathryn McConnell reversing time, mixing in musical numbers, and creating room for both sincerity and playfulness. The supporting cast members, who play a number of characters, easily transition from role to role." Full Review
"A witty, fast-paced play about friendship, loyalty, and accepting the past...The play concentrates on the the sororal relationships of the hardworking, dedicated women of the town, and still relevant themes like violence against women and the individual and community impact of returned military service people. The characters are vivid and the performances were solid." Full Review
"Those looking for something raw, unique, and devastating in a theater experience will find it in 'Trash Cuisine.' An unnerving depiction of the torture and execution of political prisoners,'Trash Cuisine' is uncomfortable to watch...And the piece deserves those unsettling feelings and the literal sickness you may experience." Full Review
"In 'Never Odd or Even,' things seem random, and there are times when it is hard to connect one scene or action sequence to the next; however, focusing on a particular moment, regardless of the context of the previous one, allows for a better and more enjoyable connection with the piece. Collectively the performers enact a higher state of consciousness as they weave through ideas of escapism, acceptance of circumstance, and physical and mental transformation." Full Review
"There are moments that the play falls to predictable caricatures and stereotypes, giving both director and actors clear limitations. Some jokes don’t really land and there are parts in the dialogue that throw too much information at us, like discussing the illegal transfer of funds. However if you enjoy pondering philosophical questions, there is an opportunity to do so in 'Devoted Dreams'." Full Review
