    A well structured, nuanced, and human play with amazing roles for Black women. The language both has the everyday irregularities of natural speech as well as a beautiful lyricism. Revelations are doled out at a good pace with wise use of flashback and private conversation. I hope to see this onstage soon!

    I had the pleasure of working on this play before it's untimely shut down (after being chosen by the artistic team) at NYTW Next Door, due to COVID. (It was named as a Kilroy selection shortly thereafter). How often do we see plays about black, queer women in the American South? How often do we see plays that are this timely, necessary, and gorgeously written? It is as honest, brutal, and touching a work as they come. It deserves many more productions.

    A gorgeous play full of lyrical language and a lot of heart and humor.

    This beautiful play had me from the start with its language, the sense of a whole world, a community policing queer women, and the character of Bird Wilson whose strength and struggle adds enormous dimension to this drama about a young girl who loses her mother. How we deal with loss is explored in a very moving way.

    Mirrors is an incredibly moving and tender story of black queerness in the rural American south. At points both heart-breaking and funny, Osborne-Lee uses a gentle touch to craft an unforgettable story around the deep longing of grief, the tragedy of a vibrant life muted by the conventions of society, and of the struggle to live one's personal truth both out in the world and with those we love the most.
