"Introducing Lady Augusta Gregory to a New Generation in 'Lady G': Ciarán O'Reilly's celebration of the seminal Irish literary figure premieres at Irish Repertory Theatre."
"The show could use a bit of trimming, but everyone's heart is in the right place and, ultimately, 'Lady G: Plays and Whisperings of Lady Gregory' shines a warm glow on an overlooked playwright, producer, and nurturer of the greatest writers of the Irish Renaissance."
"Ciarán O'Reilly is throwing a good old-fashioned Irish wake, with poems, songs, and a slice of barmbrack (Irish sweet bread) for each of the lucky attendees. It's a charming and touching tribute to a woman whose literary efforts are usually far less appreciated, unfortunately, than her advocacy."
"A fascinating study of the unforgettable Lady Gregory. Too bad the grande dame isn't alive to see it for herself."
