Published Reviews

"Somehow playwright Randy Wyatt has found passage into your most private and devious thoughts. He's listened to all the things you've wanted to say to every unpleasant person you meet on a daily basis and took notes. Just imagine this tiny little man squatting on a short stool between your ears with a stethoscope pressed to your internal voice. There's a reason we think before we talk."

Kalamazoo Gazette

"Wyatt's handle on the human psyche is dead-on. [These plays] were not only funny but enlightening, exploring the complexities of language in everyday situations."

Grand Rapids Press
