  • Sometimes the Rain, Sometimes the Sea

    What a beautiful play! Funny, poignant, heartbreaking, and hopeful. Exceptional weaving of form and structure; language and image. A fairy tale that sparkles with relevance for our current moment.
  • Mommy Dances With The Devil

    A delightful mix of absurdity, menace, (and real relatability for those who’ve ventured through those early, sometimes surreal years of parenthood). A supernatural "Mean Girls" for mommies.

    A sharp and inventive exploration of gender, power, and perception. The casting convention is particularly well-conceived and proves thought-provoking on multiple levels. Simultaneously timely, nuanced, accessible, and eminently producible. I, too, hope to see a full production of this outstanding play very soon.
  • A Driving Beat

    I had the great pleasure of getting to see this play at the 2019 Athena Project. Ramirez Puckett deftly weaves humor, pathos, and revelation in this deceptively simple story navigating identify, family, and the ties that bind us across distance and time. Beautifully written characters (the complexity and authenticity of Mateo is a stand-out), and storytelling throughout.
