Don't see it if You like all your plot threads neatly tied up in a ribbon. This theater group is too ambitious and bold for that.

Clever, Intelligent, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Quirky

See it if you want an introduction to, until recently, a relationship between two women that aided in opening the doors to equality and opportunity.

Don't see it if you cannot follow a play that is a bit disjointed where each actor plays many roles as well as assisting in the changing of the staging.

Ambitious, Entertaining, Confusing, Quirky, Great ensemble

See it if for the unique combination of history and women's issues. The ensemble work is also unusually well done.

Don't see it if you want a unified plot. There are many subplots but no complete through line.

Well-intentioned, energetic, painfully thin excuse for a play wrapped around a tidbit of history

See it if you really enjoy youthful "let's put on a show" exuberance from a talented cast

Don't see it if You expect something thoughtful with regard to history or character development. The stories had no clear connection to the history. Read more

“An amiable, time shifting and rambling play...Structurally wayward and dizzying...The finale is quite uplifting but what has come before is often muddled...Lindsey’s direction has energy, confidence and a strong visual sense that infuses the production with force but cannot compensate for some superficial and extraneous sequences...Historical details, many back stories and numerous incidents are crammed together into an intermittently appealing but ultimately unsatisfying work."

Theatre is Easy
May 21st, 2018

“An ambitious, if episodic, look at the role of a 1930s jobs program for women...Attempts to weave contemporary concerns into an historical frame...Although...audacious and conceptually fascinating, the narratives are disjointed, and the stories from Camp Tera are far more engaging than their modern counterparts...That the play does not fully live up to this potential is a shame, but it leaves the door open for more writing about this transformative, albeit short-lived, economic justice project.”

"At times I wanted to go deeper – feeling that I should call out 'Wait! Stop! Go back! Tell me more!' but they have much to tell in only 90 minutes and lingering is not an option...As an ensemble based company, their strength is in their ensemble – their dances and movement used to tell the story have an architecture to them that is there not only to move the play along, but to move us to them as they construct the story."

"Although Hook & Eye seem determined to at least touch on every aspect of social justice for which the context of a camp sets a promising stage, no single issue ever quite seems to reach the depths or pitch of crisis that would convey a real sense of stakes, whether personal and/or political...Where Hook & Eye’s real genius lies, however, is in mining the comedy to be had in the nuanced awkwardness of the interaction of strangers through brilliantly pared back dialogue and understated acting."

Stage Left
June 3rd, 2018

"With equal parts wit and heart, 'She-She-She' lives Hook & Eye’s mission of interrogating ideas through the creation of theatre 'filled with history, myth, and science'...Often messy but in the best of ways, daring to break free of convention to allow stories to be told as discovered and devised. The play does feel incomplete and episodic, but the approach to it makes for an evening full of surprises that offers a welcomed, complacency-challenging reminder that theatre can be and do anything."
