Published Reviews

"[Rush has] done a beautiful job rendering Sophocles' plot and themes in a way that respects the grandeur and majesty of ancient Greek tragedy but that also 'plays well' for modern audiences who don't necessarily come in knowing what a fifth-century-B.C.E. Athenian audience would have."

Jeff Grove, playwright and drama teacher

"[A] powerful and accessible re-telling of this classic play."

Stacy Aronovici, Theatre Arts teacher
