PRESS

"The play is about the loss of control, but the production surely isn't. Never for a second do you not feel the firm grip of a director and design team working in concert with a consistent aesthetic vision... particularly evocative work." - NY Times



"...one of the highlights of the fall season at Performance Space 122." - NY Times



"Visionary... gorgeous and obtuse - bids its audience to engage in its often abstract imagery and ideas and to challenge assumptions about marriage, mores and theatre itself." - NYTheatre.com



"Dandy theatrical experimenteur... mind bending sex comedy..." - Time Out, New York



"...an extraordinarily visual sensibility." - Village Voice



"Stories are told backwards, sideways, and sometimes not at all... Recreating the era of the Mercury Players." - The New Yorker



"Compulsion dangles like a hoop, with Archery entering a crypt in Part 1, and into levels of converse and speculation seared in the ears by Worrall's hovering sine tones." - Brooklyn Rail
