    Funny and emotionally generous, sweet and open-hearted while also tackling important issues. Reminded me of Idris Goodwin's HOW WE GOT ON in its loving portrait of young people coming of age and finding themselves through music. All of the characters are unique and specific, and you will find yourself rooting for each and every one of them. Such a joy.

    Such a phenomenal play. Equally parts side-splittingly hilarious and emotionally resonant. Tackles an incredibly relevant topic and manages to investigate it in a way that reveals a ton about our contemporary moment and the way we interact with those we disagree with. Its use of Facebook Live is ingenious, and its characters are diverse and their motivations earned and believable. Produce it!
  • Babel

    A powerful piece of speculative fiction. Goldfinger taps into the universal anxieties of parents in her portrait of a supposed utopia with insidious restrictions. While handily tackling large-scale themes around nature-vs-nurture and individual autonomy, she also manages to craft heartbreakingly authentic portraits of four people in crisis. An evocative story about society's obsession with perfection and about the chances we take for the ones we love.

    Hilarious and heartbreaking. Amazing roles for young women. One of my favorite new plays I've read in recent memory!
