The New York Times
August 23rd, 2016

"An incisive and funny exploration of lust, commitment, double standards and the mutability of desire, seen through the prism of one young woman. Smartly directed by Tosca Giustini, whose strong cast has a standout in Chelsea Melone, the play fizzles toward its too-abrupt end, but until then it’s an exciting ride. This is the kind of show I’m always glad to see, especially at the Fringe — introducing me to a voice I’ve never heard before but hope to hear again."

Theatre is Easy
August 18th, 2016

"The most impressive part of this piece is how entirely organic it feels. What could be lengthy, academic discussions of feminist theory are successfully conveyed in short, insightful observations...'Roadkill' succeeds at questioning one of the most pervasive issues women deal with, all without uttering the word 'feminist.' You don’t need to have a degree in Gender Studies to get something out of this entertaining hour."
