    A hilarious comedy about a sister who is trying to award off evil and a sister who is worried about her. A great piece for any fright fest.

    A play that makes you question good and evil has to resonate. A play that accomplishes this in less than ten pages has you gripped. Bohannn’s sisters leave you with more questions than answers. The Devil Eats Oreos leaves you with foreboding. The end gives you shudders.

    This play is a wonderful rollercoaster ride. It's smart and spunky, surprising and delightful. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    I love a play that has a twist that works regardless of what you expect to happen, and THE DEVIL EATS OREOS? has that in spades. The relationship between the sisters drives this play as much as, if not more, than the possibility of a supernatural threat. Whatever happens to these women, you know it won’t be good, but you’re inclined to follow them in the hopes that it will because they’re such fully-realized characters and their sisterly bond is so strong and easy to empathize with. This would make a great addition to a Halloween showcase.

    We live in two worlds: the adult world, and the child world. The adult world is rational, logical, safe. The child world is terrifying, filled with monsters and danger. Most plays stay in the adult world, and for most of this play Bohannon keeps us there, creating a sad and moving atmosphere. But with startling speed the play shifts worlds, leading the viewer/reader to a scary, irrational place that’s difficult to make sense of. This play is delightfully terrifying: it scares us in the most visceral way, bringing us back to forgotten places.

    What a great play, from the title to the ending. It kept me on my seat reading it, my heart going out to Susan from the very start and that pang of urgent need for her sister to her which was causing my heartbeat to increase. I loved the bond between the two, that affection that they feel for one another so strongly shown in every word!

    Sharai Bohannon masterfully twists and turns an audience's expectations and opinions in this short play. There are moments of physical and verbal humor, sympathy, dread and even horror throughout -- all nicely played out both in action and dialogue of the two sisters and a visitor to their apartment. Terrific characters that are defined by dialogue and action, a streamlined story and wonderful atmosphere. Very well done.

    I grinned from ear to ear reading this play. Bohannon's voice is sharp and hilarious, and she creates an incredibly funny, witty little play in nine very tight pages. This could totally be a full-length play--I would love to see more of the adventures of Lydia and Susan, fighting off demons and saving their cookies! Bohannon is a master of the unsettling and the hilarious, and her ten minute plays jump off the page and demand to be staged. I look forward to reading more of Bohannon's work. It needs attention. Highly recommended!

    The ending is shocking just like the ending in Conor McPherson's play SHINING CITY. Susan, who has experienced the paranormal, can't unsee what she's seen -- and those like myself who have seen strange things that can't be easily explained can relate to her. This is a play for the Lydias of the world that are skeptical, and for the Susans that are not crazy. In only a few pages, Bohannon has a constructed a complex sister relationship -- one that I'd love to see explored in a longer piece. I look forward to reading other 'horror' plays by Bohannon.

    I love the concept of this play. Funny, creepy and unsettling in all the right ways. And three fun roles for women. A solid choice for any short play festival!
