Published Reviews

"Bracing, shockingly funny. A daring, socially conscious new work."

Broadway.com

"The hot new Off-Broadway play."

The Daily News

"...a haunting drama that doesn't overemphasize its political undertrapping... Playwright Dudley has a great ear for dialogue, and truthfully realized characters. He relates their story without skirting the unsettling reality that they often enjoy their work. His writing is brutal and crisp, but full of warmth."

Jenny Sandman, Curtain Up

"Dudley has a good ear for dialogue and a gift for dark humor."

Adam Klasfeld, TheaterMania

"...crisply and vividly conveyed the pain and perils of young people forced to sell their bodies to survive..."

Ernece B. Kelly, New York Beacon
