    The violence is staggering but the satire is pure and deliberate. The fear of sacrificing one’s culture is the subject and it made my gut sink and churn. The irony of beleaguering an insult’s meaning is both breathtaking and breaking of humor. Euphemism becomes the drama at one point. A fair, even brilliant play about language regarding the ignorant who oppose it. Stubbles is an insightful playwright with a unique, deeply personal view of the oppressions which polarize the most human aspects of our citizens.

    A dark, satirical look at the hypocrisy of the "make English the official language" stance, ENGLISH ONLY is funny and terrifying, both in its depiction of the prejudice multi-lingual people would face in such a dystopia and in the brutality of the fight against that oppression. All in under 8 pages! Stirring!
