Published Reviews

"Winner of the Alliance's prestigious Kendeda Graduate Playwriting Competition, this delightful little social satire suggests that Brownell is a pretty smart cookie herself."

Wendell Brock, Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"The lovely thing about this raucously silly [...] play is the way it turns, finally, on a bittersweet and affecting note."

Wendell Brock, Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"Combines laugh-out-loud humor with a provocative story about social image and the powers that can change a person's attitudes."
