    How did she write this play so fast? It is so of our moment and so well-built. I used to teach high school English, and hated teaching The Crucible -- wish I'd had this play to teach instead.
  • La Mujer Barbuda

    Brutally honest about the challenges of early parenthood. Also hilarious and absurd and delightful.
  • Herland

    Keep an eye on Grace. This play has an incredibly light and loving touch, with three (!) great roles for older women.
  • Tom & Eliza
    18 Dec. 2017
    A unique take on the "love story two-hander" genre. I'm still thinking about it a week after reading it.
  • Jerusalem is Beautiful
    10 Nov. 2017
    Integrates personal and political conflicts beautifully.
  • Escape Velocity
    27 Sep. 2017
    If Noel Coward wrote a beautiful achronological play about the '60s counterculture, you might get something as lovely as Escape Velocity.
  • Infirmary Shakes

    A strange and uncannily moving multigenerational story.
