    A fantastic addition to the canon of Southern Theatre. A play about a trans person that isn't about them transitioning or coming out. Trans people deal with other things like having to bury their father. Such an intimate play with rich characters that have deep ties with each other. No one is good or evil here. Everyone is just doing their best.

    Playwrights Foundation highly recommends THE DEVILS BETWEEN US, 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 THE DEVILS BETWEEN US as a compelling, relevant, cathartic new work which should be produced now. Congratulations! #BAPF2021

    An incredibly layered and rich capture of working through trauma in order to move forward. When we unmask prejudices, often they're covering an inability to accept oneself. A knowledge which helps us understand and therefore forgive their behavior. Beautifully complex and powerful work.
