Published Reviews

"Dragon Play is a low-key, thoughtful and exquisitely evocative piece of theater."

Rick Pender, CityBeat

". . . starkly haunting and richly rewarding . . . Davis has invested her play with both the delicacy and brutality you'd expect of great literature. Magnificent to behold."

Orange County Register

"It's a lovely piece of work: funny and heartbreaking, lyrical without being the least bit abstruse, its timeless fairytale roots remaining grounded in the present day . . . It's bittersweet, clever, sexy and ultimately breathtakingly beautiful and disturbing at the same time."

Sam Hurwitt, KQED (Impact Theatre Production, Berkeley CA, 2014)
