    In 'From the Deep', Seinuk tests limits and digs deep into complex characters extracted from their disparate worlds at a moment’s notice. Seinuk explores captivity both physical and mental through a deftly-crafted and unrelenting relationship. Dark, chilling, and deeply moving, 'From the Deep' is at its essence a play about hope.

    This is a wonderful, thoughtful and complex two-hander. Seinuk has crafted a purgatory of sorts and we don't find out until the end where they are and what is really happening. The suspense is well crafted. The characters are incredibly layered. It wasn't a feel good play, but it definitely raised a lot of questions and stimulated a provocative conversation. I recommend it for anyone who is looking for a piece that packs a hard punch and gives actors meaty, aerobic roles.

    In From The Deep, Cassie deftly crafts a suspenseful two-hander which is no easy feat. Each character’s plight is sharply drawn and I find myself invested at every turn. Cassie creates otherworldly worlds and alternate realities that test our perceptions and challenge our ideas of freedom and captivity.

    From the Deep is a beautifully constructed play that brings the audience to a world both terribly real and yet wonderfully imaginative (quite literally in fact). Seinuk focus is laser sharp as she brings the audience to a world where waiting is the game, and the idea what that waiting means (You're captured) is painfully honest, and rarely explored on our stages. The play is both a dream and a reality, unsettling and comforting, warming and chilling.

    From the Deep manages to be psychologically realistic despite being set in a rule-bound imaginary space. Seinuk deftly acknowledges the political and social realities off-stage without taking the focus off of the struggle that Ilan and Andrew face as they attempt to maintain their sanity. I reviewed its first full production by Boston Public Works in 2015. My review can be found here: http://artsfuse.org/124741/fuse-theater-review-from-the-deep-real-pain-in-an-imaginary-space/
