    A taut, tense gut-punch of a play. What Mark Loewenstern is able to achieve in just ten pages is simply amazing -- an intense emotional ride that leaves us shaken and breathless. Bravo!

    Mark Loewenstern delivers an unsettling modern take on a classic fairytale. GRANDMOTHER'S HOUSE becomes more and more disturbing as the play progresses and the plot unfolds. While no one is getting eaten and (spoilers) no one is turned into Tang, the truth of what is going on with Renee is a sad reality.

    This would be absolutely devastating to see on stage!

    Oh I love a good twist of an old tale and this one had me gripped throughout! At the same time it's troubling how grandma's condition is played on. I also love how this great story is left open for us to ponder what happens next. It's left me thinking, which is always a great thing!
