    Intriguing concept right from the start, with very funny one-liners balanced with its drama! I would love to see this piece performed live.

    A highly original comedy-drama about family dynamics and the cycle of life. ACTS OF CREATION is topical, poignant and often very funny, with five juicy roles for actors to enjoy and explore. Well-deserving of all the accolades it's already received!

    I very much enjoyed reading this piece! Its boldness in exploring death/legacy vis-a-vis AI and autogeneration is rife with theatrical potential. I also appreciated encountering a play that affords roles for older female actors, granting them a chance to shine. Brava Brianna!
