    The depth of character and use of language in A POISON SQUAD OF WHISPERING WOMEN really knocked me off my feet. It's a historical play, that feels immediate and on the pulse of what's happening in our country right now. It's no surprise that this was a finalist for Playwright Foundation's festival this year, I hope that it finds more development and production opportunities. Really well done.

    The language of this work is poetic and perfectly reflective of the time in which its set. It is completely and beautifully symbolic that the white women through their lot in with the Klan to their ruin. Impactful and expertly created.

    Great roles for women and a detailed view of a subculture from another time are what you'll encounter in this play. That she's able to make KKK members sympathetic speaks to the brilliance of the pen of McBurnette-Andronicos. A powerful reminder that you don't mess with a determined group of women.
