September 10th, 2018

"Talk of systemic racism is necessary food for thought in this America, but it’s abruptly and awkwardly incorporated into the production...Featuring poverty, physical and sexual abuse, and addiction, this stage memoir includes more than its fair share of misfortune, but it’s undone by the gaps in its telling...And for a show so grounded in language, 'The Unwritten Law' lacks the precision and freshness of first-rate wordsmithery."
