    A captivating play as we follow the journey of this character as she heals and opens herself up to hopefully a new and positive outcome. Well done.

    Whew! This is a beautiful and melancholic heartbreaker of a play with a strong undercurrent of humanity, a good sense of humor, and a subtly woven sci-fi bent. "i" is a unique extended metaphor for grief, depression, and the lengths we go to heal ourselves after traumatic events. It poses the excellent question--what is the cost living with your grief rather than relegating it to a compartment you never open? Talbott offers no easy answers to Sarah's plight. Sudden revelations at the end are effectively potent, and the play's conclusion is both somber and hopeful. A lovely piece!

    A play that keeps you guessing from the jump and keeps going into surprising new directions with every scene. A fantastic drama of relationships with a sci-fi edge.

    A brilliant character study of a woman escaping her past. Set slightly in the future, Jeff Talbott’s twisty, mysterious, funny and sad play about a wife who embarks on a new life — where has she been?, where is she going?, what’s her story? — has the hint of a romantic comedy with elements of mother-daughter drama, sci-fi yarn and family tragedy. This four-actor play tackles universal human ideas with heart, humor and hope. You will never forget it. And you’ll want to see it again and again to uncover its rich layers.

    I am ready for so much more science fiction in our theaters! I caught the world premiere of "i" at Pioneer Theatre Company, it's a tender and funny play. It makes you think about the possibilities coming in our future with medical advancements, and the devastation those possibilities might create.
