Published Reviews

"McLaughlin's bold, provocative script for is a mixture of highly poetic and often almost timeless language with pointed anachronisms. It raises some complex questions and would make a welcome addition to classical drama courses. With its feminist perspective and uniformly ambitious female roles it would make a significant contribution to the growing theatrical dialogue and be an excellent choice for productions in academic theater programs."

Helen Foley, Chair, the Classics Department at Barnard College, Columbia University
