Published Reviews

"At times, the tension in this 'psychosexual horror story' is stretched so fine that it seems the entire audience is holding its collective breath... A riveting, at times astonishing journey."

Robert Hurwitt, San Francisco Chronicle

"There is something deliciously creepy about Jordan Harrison's new play, Finn in the Underworld, a time-bending little thriller that reveals family secrets, real or imagined."

Pat Craig, Contra Costa Times (California)

"One of the pleasures of Harrison's spare, crisp writing is the way he lets us in on the decades-old tensions in this family without over-dramatizing them... Harrison blends time and characters in fascinating, confusing, revelatory ways."

Chad Jones, Oakland Tribune
