Front Row Center
September 17th, 2017

"The actresses inhabit their roles effortlessly, each a portrait of unique experience from very different social backgrounds...Graham’s direction deftly combines nuance with attack, wrestling with tough material from a deeply personal perspective. This play throws you back in your seat. It is intense...As the characters trace a dizzying path across stage in the steady build of the action, you feel the war...'A Piece of My Heart' is a cathartic and deeply moving piece of writing."

A Work Unfinishing
September 11th, 2017

“What's remarkable about this production is how immediately urgent it feels, how presently now each moment is…Graham conducts this symphony of the unsung women with grace and subtlety…‘A Piece of My Heart’ isn't an easy play to watch - but it is an essential play to witness. When an ensemble works together so well, shares the space so generously, and moves and speaks with full trust of the support of every player, it's quite beautiful to watch.”
