    Theatre transforms and empowers and, thankfully, disempowers those who would abuse their power. Well done.

    I saw the Virtual Sacred Fools production of this play, and I was fully invested right from the start. This is a new and exciting play within a play that explores urgent issues.

    Brilliant work! Each of the students is well crafted and this is a great script for a female ensemble. I was captivated by each girls' response to the situation, especially Susan's and how it relates to Creon. The tension of the last scene is explosive. Hope to catch this one live!

    The transformative power of theater is a popular trope, especially, you know, among theater people. In this tale we have a charming male drama coach, new to the school, one who inspires his young charges, and helps them to break through their personal issues to be more their true selves. He also has sex with one of them. Themes of pride, confidence, and the indefatigable power of women, all present in Antigone, are also reflected in this play, as the girls band together to protect one of their own. Highly recommended!

    A fantastic ensemble piece for young women that is both beautiful and tragic - just as its source material can be. Each character is a delightfully and intriguingly full person who I could gladly watch for far longer than the length of the play. And along with the brilliant way this play uses Sophocles' Antigone and creates something even bigger, I love that it challenges the notion of "the show must go on" and asks us if that is truly the healthiest mentality to promote.

    This one hits the mark in such an unflinching way. Bold and honest in the way that high school girls are.

    As an English teacher who taught ANTIGONE for years and a playwright, I truly admired this play. Each character is a uniquely rendered individual. The circumstances of the school mimic the stakes and weight of tragedy itself. The action from start to end feels inevitable but not stale--it poignantly and tragically comments on the larger social forces standing in the way of girls and women. In a contemporary twist on tragic structure, the end feels hopeful--what happens in the play is a travesty and tragedy, but the final moment foreshadows the idea that change can come through resistance.

    An excellent play that is fiercely and boldly written. A wonderfully constructed play that weaves the myth of Antigone with a production of Antigone with notes of Antigone in the relationship of the main characters. Brilliantly done. A sign of an excellent writer is even at the end I found myself feeling for each character, even the one who commit huge wrongs.

    Harrowing, indelible, necessary: a work of pure genius. This play is difficult to read, but even more difficult to put down.

    This is the best play!!!!! BRILLIANT! It is not only Antigone but Antigone (the play within this play) inspires the young women characters and they in turn inspire me and hopefully everyone else who ever sees this play! WONDERFULLY WRITTEN! Each character is so well drawn, and I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. KUDOS!
