    A beautiful play, the language is so natural, so clear. Ending brings tears to my eyes. A simple plot about a complex relationship.

    A wonderful play! So nimble, clear and intense. High stakes and in inside look into an Asian family in a country where favors and status is the norm.

    This play of family dysfunction, fame, secrets and discovery strikes the right note at the crossroads of memory and forgiveness. Wonderful!

    This romp of teenage longing, confusion, searching, questioning and discovery is spot on and brought me back emotionally to my own crazy teen years of wonder and experimentation. I had so much fun reading this play and it would be even more fun to see, to produce or to perform in! You got young people in your troupe? Do it! Fantastic!

    A very interesting retelling of the Apollo myths!

    A piece that will get your audience talking for a long time. Harrowing and yet simple, life in a war zone explored through the people living (and dying) there. Excellent!

    Funny, moving, poignant. I had the pleasure of attending the recording of ABRAHAM'S DAUGHTERS for Parsnip Ship podcast. The humor in the play aids us in accepting and processing the daily horror faced by residents of Israeli-occupied territories in Palestine. A beautiful work about the founding and displacing of nations, with complex characters, set within the context of a family. If you want to give your audience something to discuss, this is the play.

    This short play is clever in its concept and fun in its execution. I just listened to a radio version on the Short Play Podcast on Apple pod casts and it was a great little story with a nice twist at the end.
