“This revival of ‘Owners’ may not pack as much of a punch or elicit as many laughs as it did, but Caryl Churchill’s satire still feels relevant in its bleak timeliness. With a strong cast and clever staging, sometimes its heavy handedness can be justified as it examines what we’re willing to do to get what we want in a society that prevents us from doing so.”

“The play smartly considers how every relationship has an owner and some of its satirical observations on consumerism, wealth divide and patriarchal privilege could be delivered with a more brutal streak. Churchill’s issues are still urgent but, played as a period piece with bursts of yesteryear pop hits, this is really a blast from the past.”
