    "How exactly do we become the people we are? That knotty question hovered in the air at the Humana Festival of New American Plays... The most intriguing works in the festival, now under the direction of Les Waters, take the audience on engrossing journeys through the thick underbrush of the human psyche as it is shaped by family, society and the divided impulses of the self."

    The New York Times

    "There's nothing else in the performing arts quite like the Humana Festival of New American Plays... It was a visionary proposition 37 years ago, and one that continues to be an extraordinary venture."

    Louisville Eccentric Observer

    "The 2013 Humana Festival of New American Plays at Actors Theatre of Louisville [has] ended...but its impact will be felt at other festivals and theatres long after living moments there are just memories."

    ArtsNash

    "The festival, which is produced every year by Actors Theatre of Louisville, Ky., remains one of the most prominent national showcases for new stage work, this year attracting nearly 450 industry pros to check out its world premieres."
