"'Die For Me' embarks on a shaky journey of half-explored themes of family and redemption. With the plot catapulting ahead so rapidly in such a different direction, there’s little time to reflect on why anything that is happening needs to be shown...Ness has, however, created a very special intimacy between Reese and Allie...Their sweet affection for one another grounds 'Die For Me' in an idea that is worth exploring even further."
"‘Die For Me’ is a promising premise that falters when it goes astray. Ness blends a poetic dialogue into a colloquial tale…Why is Allie's father seen and not Reece's parents? Ness must decide whether this play desires a complete adult presence through voiceover or have an actor or actors represent these voices physically. ‘Die For Me’ will also benefit from a fresh collaborator. It's clear that Ness is quite close to his script. An extra set of eyes is always helpful."
