    I love plays like this that leave you really moved but not totally sure what exactly happened. This play is creepy to the max and the possibilities are endless for directors, actors and designers in terms of capturing the atmosphere spelled out on the page. Like all great horror this play is about real fears that all humans deal with. In this play those fears are death and living a purposeless existence and McVay explores them in really unique ways with these rich characters. PRODUCE THIS PLAY!!!

    Wow wow wow. Bizarre, chilling, terrible, lovely - one of the most engaging scripts I have read in a long time. Can see myself coming back to this again and again. The characters are fascinating and tragic, the conflict twisted and dark. Just the right blend of fantasy / horror / history that I have been searching for for so long.

    A dark and scary as hell play that had me on the invested and tense the whole time. Right away it is clear that this world is not right, and McVay teases out little bread crumbs along the way letting us discover just disturbing it really is. Very excited to see where this play goes, as well as this playwright.

    Surreal in it's handling of social conflicts, McVay takes the audience out of time and forces them to confront just how archaic contemporary society still can be. How Sweet the Sound pulls no punches.

    This is one of the most thought provoking and thrilling play I've ever read. I remember having the incredible opportunity of seeing it in a full production and I was asking questions till the very end. The way McVay defines and confines the world around the characters is masterful. A beautiful piece of work that sucks you in and never lets go.

    An absolutely thrilling and horrific story. McVay excels at writing multi-faceted characters who keep secrets from each other, the audience, and even from themselves. A truly well-done play.

    I mean it when I say that How Sweet The Sound is one of my favorite plays. An absolutely triumphant early script from a playwright we are all going to see a lot more of. McVay creates a world that creeps up on you, where no one, not even the audience has all the same information. She writes comedy, fantasy, drama, and even horror exceptionally well. This play will break your expectations time and time again, and leave you wanting more. An important work for our time in a style you don't frequently see.
