    This play is an absolutely wild ride for three dynamic actors. I appreciate the way that Brandli has chosen to tackle a subject that might be difficult for some to comprehend and a genre that is not often seen on our stages and make it accessible through her compelling story and dynamic relationships. I would love to see this work on stage!

    Playwrights Foundation highly recommends M-THEORY: a play told in 11 dimensions, which excelled to the Finalist round (top 35) for the 44th annual Bay Area Playwrights Festival out of 755 plays. Our community of readers felt this play best represented the mission of our festival. This work engaged us, inspired us, moved us, and was an outstanding example of transformative storytelling. Our local Bay Area Literary Council commends M-THEORY as a compelling, relevant, cathartic new work which should be produced now. Congratulations! #BAPF2021
