ASHLEY STEED certified reviewer June 13, 2014
This is an inventive way of presenting three separate works in progress (adaptations of Passing by Nella Larsen, The Underdogs by Mariano Azuela, and Nightwood by Djuna Barnes). Director Kate Motzenbacker has done a great job of piecing together the three works, interweaving them into one performance, all the while ensuring that each piece never gets lost. They also have a wonderfully captivating ensemble giving top-notch performances. There are some lovely threads thus far and I look forward to seeing how they develop. This is definitely a company I’ll be looking out for. ... full review

This show absolutely refreshed me and left me grinning an... full review

What a beautiful show! Please do yourself a favor and catch this if you have the chance. A fascinating adaptation of three different literary works into interweaving stories, that left me wanting more. These are fascinating, relevant stories from voices we do not hear often enough. The whole ensemble of actors was great, with particularly (and oh so refreshingly) strong yet nuanced female characters. More of this, please! Lots of great dialogue and beautiful moments, both visually and verbally; this speaks to an excellent communication & collaboration between actors, writers and director. Wonderful direction by Kate Motzenbacker - even with multiple stories going on, they all felt of the same world and tone. The pacing was great - ... full review
