REVIEWS

“Finch’s dialogue is potent, beautifully expressed and mysterious, especially in its dreamlike mystical moments. There’s some haunting imagery in the play that gives it a ritualistic, almost fairy-tale-like quality at times. More than anything, though, it’s a tense and unsettling piece that plays with race, gender, family and power dynamics in provocative and sometimes brutal ways” ~ Sam Hurwitt, marinij.com

“Blending blunt prose with lush, intricate poetry, Finch does more than put lyrical words in the mouths of her richly rendered characters; she uses that language to create an atmosphere of off-kilter dreaminess …” ~ David Templeton, northbaystageandscreen.com
