"Finds a sweet spot between political satire and one of those evening-with biographical dramas...Allen does a masterful job of shifting from comedy to drama...The playwright and director John Vreeke found an awesome collaborator in actress Lisa Hodsoll, who is able to walk the very fine line between biographical portrait and send-up that is in the script."

"A powerful, challenging new play...'but i cd only whisper' might frustrate theatergoers who look for a clear-cut beginning, middle and end when they see a play, but Colon’s approach seems true to Beau’s situation and his state of mind...The entire cast is made up of the Flea’s extraordinary resident company, The Bats, who never cease to amaze me with their talent and commitment...No audience member is more than two rows from the action – adding to the power of this special experience."

"Both plays are about the tensions between teachers and students, and the sexual currents that can sometimes overshadow the academic work in a classroom...'Squash' is the longer and more substantial of the two plays. Director Stafford Arima gives it an expansive, environmental staging...Gurney brings a lot of humor to the serious issues he raises in both plays and he gives the actors many juicy and surprising scenes to play."
