    A wonderfully cinematic and exhilarating journey. Bohannon has crafted a world and characters that feel real, vulnerable, and at times all too familiar. A funny, fascinating, enthralling play that deserves to find life on the stage.

    Every character is a complete package and it’s fun to see what each new person brings to the script. Maggie and her situation feels oh so real and then tension when everything comes crashing down! Little details round out this piece. Well done!

    It's an age old crime, when faced with an ever worsening crisis of survival, women have been forced to get creative. But with the age of social media, we judge ourselves constantly and others in addition to being terrified that our secrets could leak out on the internet. A powerful examination of the ways we try to get by and the stigma it can carry. Great work!

    Maggie is an amazing central character whose journey is human and compelling, and we root for her throughout the script. Bohannon examines financial strain of young folks, gender/racial/sexual double and triple standards, the stigma of sex work, and more with a great deal of nuance and complexity. Humor abounds here, but arises out of the situations and Bohannon treats her characters with sensitivity and care and with a crystal clear, sharp eye towards their intersectional identities. I also loved the clever use of projections to expand the world and social commentary within.

    Craigslisted is a creative and very funny look at the corners of the world we wish we could ignore. I appreciate the empathetic angle Bohannon presents for each of characters, even as we dive deeper into their psyches. These aren't folks most people would want to let into their lives, let alone meet, but none are presented as anything but human. It's that empathy that makes this such an astute probe into the choices people - specifically young people - are forced to make in order to remain financially stable.

    "Craigslisted" is a smart, funny, engaging, thought-provoking piece of theater. The characters have distinct voices and the story builds in a way that is both exciting and realistic. It's the kind of play I'd want to see with friends so we could sit around in a bar or coffee shop talking about it for hours after final bows.

    "Craigslisted" is a very relevant and interesting play, especially with social media being so prevalent in today's society. I loved the unique storyline, raw dialogue, and many twists and turns that kept my eyes glued to the page. Fantastic work!

    "Craigslisted" is a piece that takes a lot of chances and touches on some of the stranger parts of Craigslist. Luckily, Bohannon does a great job keeping the story lighthearted and funny in the beginning, but does an equally great job giving it a more serious tone when things go wrong towards the end. Each interaction and character is unique and adds their own element of story telling that allows Bohannon to represent a lot of different strange cultures, and she provides a strong character to lead the way. This was an easy pick to read for class.

    Bohannon pulled together so many different themes and ideas to create such a unique story in the world of playwriting. Finding an engaging play about feminism and doing what you can to get by, with Craiglist at the center was a pleasant surprise. Even stories about sex-workers need to be written, and especially stories about women of color, to which Bohannon captures incredibly and had me itching to read each and every moment.

    Bohannon creates a strong work of literature by tackling timely issues, and then expanding upon that by bringing many different and specific narratives to life. From furries to toenail painters, Bohannon takes us on a journey through one of the more mysterious sides of the internet, all the while examining fetishization culture and how power dynamics persist in all facets of society. Bohannon is extremely creative and talented, and the play was very hard to put down and kept me wanting to know what would happen next.
