A Spirited Manor - A Penny Dreadful
- Margaret O'Donnell:6 Apr. 2021“ What a fun ride! All the way through, this play kept me guessing. Kate Danley plays with the Victorian novel's supernatural obsessions and makes them glow with new life and wickedly subversive fire. ”
- Chelsea Frandsen:22 Mar. 2021“ As an unabashed fan of the Penny Dreadful I can't recommend this play enough! Danley has a marvelous talent painting pictures with words(both in the dialogue and stage directions), and the play as a whole is a designer and director's dream! ”
- Beth Sheridan:30 Oct. 2020“ This is a fun scary tale, perfect for Halloween reading. ”
