"Gary Garrison's plays are simply the best short plays around. We beg him every year to put something in our Boston Theater Marathon, and every year he outdoes himself with plays that speak to our foibles, our complexities, and always, always our humanity. It's no wonder he has written a how-to book about it-he's the master!" ~ Kate Snodgrass, Artistic Director, Boston Theater Marathon/Boston Playwrights' Theatre

"It is not often that you can find an expert who is able to share their knowledge and guide others as openly and tirelessly as Gary Garrison ... As the respondent for the Annual Ten-Minute Play Festival, he not only teaches through the production critiques, he can often be found working with a production group long after the formal theatre response. Bravo Gary Garrison!" ~ Betsey Baun, Executive Director, Southeastern Theatre Conference
