    This play had me laughing out loud! Ward's sharp writing and sense of humor shine in this hilarious, smart, and painfully true look at income inequality. Feed them all to the gators!
  • The Assumption of Love
    27 Oct. 2021
    Inspired by Edward Hopper's painting, Hotel Room, this play is an honest and human story about unrequited love and heartbreak. I'm sure when I see that painting from now on, I'll always think of these two characters and the tender moment of connection they share.

    I was so moved by this touching and theatrical exploration of love. Lamedman’s characters, as always, are so deeply human with their perfect imperfections. The play takes an honest and heartfelt look at complex subjects like grief, gender identity, and how difficult and scary change can be with humor and-- above all-- heart. I would love to see this beautiful play come to life on stage.

    I'm pretty sure I held my breath for all 12 pages of this gripping and all-too-timely play. Lamedman keeps you on the edge of your seat through the twists and turns of a story that reveals itself to be not quite what it seems at first. Expertly done!

    Wow. This beautiful short play captures so much with expert simplicity. There are oceans of social and political dynamics rolling underneath Faust's snapshot of two women sharing a moment on their last day building Victory Ships for the war effort.

    A smart, honest, imaginative, funny and heartwarming look at dementia, sisters, and, ultimately, love. It tackles tough subject matter with humor and heart. I absolutely love this play and hope to see a full production.

    This is such a powerful, timely, smart, and stirring play. I can’t stop thinking about it and can’t wait to see a full production.

    This is a beautiful-- and funny!-- play that shows off Lamedman's gift for writing honest, relatable, and deeply human characters. Loved it.
  • Dead Special Crabs

    This wild adventure of a play has it all: laughs, surprises, action, and a magic crab named Crunken. It also has a lot of heart and a beautiful message about being who you are. Kitrosser's work is smart, fun, and bursting with boundless imagination. This is a road-trip worth taking.

    Wow. This all too timely play really caught me off guard. Carnes' witty dialogue and well-drawn female characters draw you in, but just when you think you know what this play is, it takes one unexpected turn and then another, with devastating results. Extremely well crafted.
