"What's amazing about Knowing Cairo is that such a well-crafted, insightful, and deeply moving study on aging was produced by a playwright barely into her 30s. [Stolowitz] digs deep into the complex realities of middle- and old-age relationships, and the burdens and responsibilities we have to each other."
Pam Kragan, North County Times
"The three character drama fascinates. It's a mystery, only you don't realize it to the end."
Jeff Smith, San Diego Reader
"It's a lovely, poignant play. Stolowitz is a gem."
Charlene Baldridge, sdtheatrescene.com
"Part of the strength of Knowing Cairo, Andrea Stolowitz's new play, is the playwright's brave refusal to sugarcoat the issues and tough decisions that attend the subject."
Paul Hodgins, The Orange Country Register
"This award winning local playwright has developed a work that is lovingly, wittily, and realistically written."
Rob Hopper, San Diego Playbill
"All of our parents might be different -- admittedly, some are easier to enjoy than others -- but the circumstances are the similar. Watching the interaction between the play's harried daughter and recalcitrant mother -- and laughing about it -- reminds us that feeling alternately frantic and redundant are part of the job description. It was clear from the opening scene that playwright Andrea Stolowitz, a UCSD graduate, has been there and done that."
Marsha Kay Seff, The San Diego Union-Tribune
"Stolowitz rises impressively to the occasion, with her unerring ear, depth of insight, and flair for humor and drama. Her intriguing characters are beautifully brought to life."
Pat Launer, KPBS, a broadcast service of San Diego University
