Published Reviews

"A haunting, romantic story with a mystery at its center."

Jason Zinoman, The New York Times

"A piece of poetry whose form sculpts its content into a dynamic piece of art."

The Huffington Post

"The play's flights of imagination pull you up for a ride."

Time Out New York

"With a Hitchcockian sensibility, [Courtney] makes psychodrama out of the mystery of what keeps people together even as imaginations and egos push them apart. Like a souvenir from a fleeting dream, this play will pass over you painlessly, and then it will linger."

Jason Fitzgerald, Backstage
