The power of neuro-diversity, Fully committed cast of talented performers, Humorous and endearing, Thought-provoking

See it if Have interest in technology, neuro-diversity, disability, democracy, and an Australian acting troupe that also developed the piece.

Don't see it if Have a narrow sense of what performance can be.

Relevant, Intense, Great writing, Intelligent, Ambitious

See it if To take in a thoughtful, challenging, lively work written and performed by mentally disabled writer/actors who provoke and challenge.

Don't see it if You’re looking for traditional narrative. This is structured but experimental work that values ideas over plot. Read more

"A series of conversations about the dialogue around political correctness…the cast, all disabled…each debate that description of themselves…The collectively built text speaks well to the uncertainties around ethics and language in our time."

Score: 96%. "The Public Theater's always enlightening Under the Radar Series in its 16th year is now in full swing with 22 offerings and one of its most impressive is 'The Shadow Whose Prey the Hunter Becomes.'"

New York Theater
January 9th, 2020

"The long arty title and the vague, grand description are misleading. 'The Shadow etc.' has a straightforward subject and a clear point of view: 'We are a group of people with disabilities, fighting oppression and injustice,' says one of the four performers."
