“A revelation… I couldn’t stop grinning, partly because Liza Birkenmeier’s play is so witty and partly because it’s so weird. Both are welcome these days… Birkenmeier is exploring the power women achieve when they make themselves the subject of their stories instead of the object.” – Jesse Green, The New York Times
