"Snap to. It’s a high compliment to say that these two one-act plays, 'Wives' and 'The Academy,' made me feel as if I was standing at one end of a rope that I had just snapped, watching the vibration loop through to its surprising, inevitable conclusion, producing no sound at all, just the silence of a realization, like a joke with a serious punch line, if such things exist."
