    This play keeps you on the edge of your seat! From the flashbacks with the memories to the symbolism of the birds, this play is so powerful. It really makes you wonder why people do the things they do.

    I loved this play! Carabatsos takes one sentence, and creates a masterpiece with it. This show has you thinking and questioning everything, and everyone the entire way through!

    I love the feeling of this play. Everything is so surreal. It feels like I'm in a dream, exploring an old childhood home. The use of flashbacks is powerful and emotional. This whole play feels separate from time and space!

    This play allows you to get that crime show rush while connecting with each character. Each character has their own unique past and reactions that allow the reader to wonder "what will happen?" throughout the entire play.

    If you don't want to read the monster of a novel Crime and Punishment, then I would suggest this play. It is a mysterious thriller that will keep you wondering not the who but the why. Full of three interesting characters with equally interesting pasts, this play is a perfect crime show that will push the ideas of the guilty and innocent.

    What a fantastic piece! Carabatsos creates an atmospheric theatrical world with just a few characters and rhythmic, spare dialogue. I love the way that the piece winds back and forth through time and moves along at a steady yet constantly building pace. The use of the source material is also inspiring and helps me see that text in a new light--the roots of Rodion's (or Ross') desire to be exceptional feels clearly sprung from toxic and destructive tropes of masculinity and are effectively contrasted with the reasonable and incredibly justifiable anger, pain, and rage of the women represented here.

    What resonates in this amazing new work is the modern belief that we are right (whoever we are) and that they are wrong (whoever they are) and that our rightness justifies any action, and any statement. There are no disagreements, there are no differences of opinion, there is right and there is wrong. And it is this sense of being right that makes one superior to the other. We are free to define our own reality, and in that definition we reign supreme. Carabotsos deftly describes our entire society, one in which paranoia and alienation dominate our actions. Highly recommended!

    From a mysterious sentence to a thrilling play, 'We Will Not Describe The Conversation' is a gripping parable about murder and memory. Eugenie Carabatsos excitingly explores ideas and nuances of repressed femme power in stark contrast to the violent reality of masculinity and the overwhelmingly patriarchal world we live in today. Yet another wildly successful theatre piece that has found its own unique world tucked away in the pages of Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment; yet this play has a haunting agenda all it's own. A fantastic read, and a play worth producing for sure!

    What a wonderful play - from a sentence written by Dostoyevsky, Carabatsos makes a whole new piece, and it sings! I love the words and the birds. Fascinating and filled with so much dramatic tension, great moments - the destroying and rebuilding of lives - a memorable play!
