Critic Reviews (5)

The New York Times
August 7th, 2015

"By locating the action in Manhattan, where echoes of Sept. 11 have never really ebbed, the play appropriates a credible anxiety and intensity. Still, a mystery should puzzle. 'Pimm’s Mission' telegraphs its plot twists from a long way off, and neither of the biggest ones comes as a surprise."

CurtainUp
August 7th, 2015

"'Pimm's Mission' provides just enough tension and mystery to keep the audience interested but not enough character development to make any lasting impact...'Pimm's Mission' has many of the elements that make it perfect for a 60-minute episode in a television series. For some people, that will be quite enough."

"'Pimm’s Mission' from beginning to end will grip your emotions and intellect. The ensemble work, the direction, the theatrical elements appropriately cohere with the writing which is sharp, unexpected and devastating. This is a play for our time and its messages are not to be taken lightly. A must-see production."

"This is a play designed for these actors, as well as for the Midtown Manhattan location where it both takes place and is performed. The small, intimate theater is perfect for drawing an audience into the tale Pimm is spinning, a story that at first seems like simple chatter in a bar but ultimately has the potential to destroy lives as it spirals out of control."

New York Theatre Guide
August 7th, 2015

"Most of what happens happens off stage, and so, 'Pimm’s Mission' misfires...It fails to deliver because it’s far too easy too see where the plot is going from the get go. Even when the denouement comes, there are niggling little holes in the scenario that make it unsatisfactory for the audience. As I said, Plot is a harsh mistress, and she can be a real pain when her needs aren’t met."
