Absorbing, Intelligent, Great writing, Thought-provoking

See it if Enjoy works by writers who may not be well-known though established.

Don't see it if Don't want any more plays about the post-election sentiment.

Cliched, Disappointing, Great acting

See it if You want to see talented young actors doing their best to overcome weak material.

Don't see it if Tired political posturing and trite, tired plot makes you want to head for the exit.

TheaterScene.net
June 7th, 2017

"A program of two intriguing and engrossing works...Miyagawa’s dialogue is often poignant and wry, and it all builds to a wistful conclusion...'In the Line' is a vibrant and theatrically realized mediation on contemporary life...'The Test' is a fine blend of well-delineated characters, flavorful dialogue and provocative situations. It’s somewhat marred by a pedantic lecture near the end...It’s crisply staged with a measured pace...The acting is exceptional."

“‘The Test’ is a thoughtful and timely work...The performances are exceptional; the four-person cast truly functions as an ensemble. ‘Great Again’ is a mixed bag…Their pairing doesn’t feel organic—they are simply in dissimilar stages of development. While 'In the Line' isn’t quite ready for audiences yet, 'The Test' is a strong and fully realized work. That said, 'In the Line' isn’t egregiously bad, it’s just underdeveloped, while 'The Test' is definitely worth sitting through the first play.”

Theater In The Now
July 6th, 2017

"Both illuminate, with stark presentational differences, some of the various challenges, impressions, and impulses facing women and people of color today...'In the Line' is a sweetly subversive and dreamlike tumble...Despite the piece’s focus on lines, Horton seamlessly incorporates a great deal of movement...Under Hill’s crisp and elegant direction, 'The Test' swiftly advances...A play about division, fear, resentment, and picking sides, and what it takes in 2017 to overcome it all."
