    A play of raw and deep reflection. Caridad's work here is simple but in your face, a snap shot of an America we all are cautious about.

    There is beauty in the language Svich employs through the pieces of the AMERICAN PSALM cycle. It is at once primitive and essential, as though trying to find the root dialect of the United States. Time will tell if Caridad Svich will be remembered as a great playwright or a chronicler-prophet who is reporting, in dramatic form, on the decaying pillars upon which America has prospered and now balances precariously, but those are for our succeeding generations to decide. For now, read FUEL. Experience Svich exposing our deepest flaws and, in exposure, discover our deepest wells of love and humanity.

    I love the simple poetic nature of Svich's dialogue. These characters don't always say much but their connections with each other and their current situations are so clear. Also that last moment will drive audience to sobs. Though much more expressionistic than other plays about blue collar communities, this piece deserves to be alongside Dominique Morriseau's Skeleton Crew and Lynn Nottage's Sweat as plays that truly speak to the heart of this nation today.

    I like Svich, a lot, I've written such, and this play's brilliant. Partly why I admire 'Fuel' is it's the latest of a recent, simpler, more ingenious, purer quality of writing Svich's been exhibiting in her last two, three scripts. She's always poetic; what excites me, my imagination, interpretation, is her profound allegory of a plausible USA. She's been pertinent; this feels prescient. I'm prudent about pulling off a puppet on stage, come the day, I hope it's worthy of this. Svich is Queen of Duo Against the World, but this pair is nearly trapped by one tragic "complicity." Home.

    The simple dialogue and relationships between these characters created beautiful and painful magic.i want to experience this one live.
