"There's a lot going in Chasing the River, arguably too much for ninety minutes…But there's no denying that [it]maintains a page-turning hold on one's attention."
"The subject matter of 'Chasing the River' is, of course, viable, but the play is not as nuanced and insightful as one would hope-nor is it particularly gripping. Sometimes the action feels stagey, and at other times it seems undercooked."
"In an era where #MeToo has become a clarion call, many women still don't speak out, fearing shame and stigma. This play is a powerful reminder of society's failure to adequately address this issue."
