"'Bundle of Sticks' Imagines the Bizarre Cult of Gay Conversion Therapy: J. Julian Christopher's new play takes place in an underground camp in the heart of Australia."
"This is a subject that has been treated at length elsewhere, more critically and with greater sensitivity, and in trying to bring something new to it, Christopher turns it into camp, and unfunny camp at that."
3/5 Stars. "J. Julian Christopher's play about dreaded conversion therapy, played by an all-female cast."
"Ultimately, the men and the serpent defeat Otto together, and some expendable moments and dialogue aside, Bundle of Sticks engages the audience with humor and imagination, culminating in joyous freedom for the men and their natural desires."
"Raw and with moments of imagination, 'Bundle of Sticks' could afford to stylistically dive deeper into its author's wild imagination. For now, there are sparks but little fire."
