Critic Reviews (5)

Theatre is Easy
October 14th, 2015

"Lamb’s 'Ten Ways on a Gun' is never boring. It is a hyper-active darkly comic trip...My biggest gripe is that the show is less diverse than it could be, especially for a production that is otherwise so timely and self-aware. I think that Squeaky Bicycle could have done more to reflect its multicultural community in the casting."

Stage Buddy
October 19th, 2015

"The performance is fast paced and moves us between the two stories in an entertaining way, with director Kathryn McConnell reversing time, mixing in musical numbers, and creating room for both sincerity and playfulness. The supporting cast members, who play a number of characters, easily transition from role to role."

Theater In The Now
October 17th, 2015

"To truly grasp the story you may need a roadmap to figure out where exactly in space and time you are...With multiple narratives present, Lamb spreads them thin, never really defining certain moments...'Ten Ways on a Gun' is certainly an interesting piece but has the potential to be even stronger. There are strong themes inside the text but they are lost to a first-time viewer."

"The production is plagued by a few logical flaws around the very idea of timesharing a gun... While a little too caught up in the conceit of a theater company devising a play about the subject matter they are truly addressing, director Kathryn McConnell and Squeaky Bicycle Productions do reveal some important truths about why giving up guns isn't as easy as it seems."

New York Theatre Review
October 18th, 2015

"The ensemble gels well together – uniformly sharp, comically dark, and at times outrageous, especially during blitzkrieg choreography. Yet due to the level of implausible camp, when the play strives for serious sentiment, insincerity often results…While the piece as a whole endures a scattered focus, Squeaky Bicycle’s collective creativity demonstrates something undeniably bold and ambitious.”
