The New Yorker!!
so dear backers... we think you'll be proud to hear our latest review is from the new yorker ("goings on about town" section). we think it's pretty awesome!
Erica Fae and Jill A. Samuels’s drama appears tiny—the seventy-minute-long play is set on a tiny stage and is dominated by a small, fine-boned actress (Fae)—but its scope is huge: it’s the true story of the imprisonment of Alice Paul, the thirty-two-year-old co-founder of the National Woman’s Party, who, after getting arrested outside of the White House for obstructing traffic during a protest in 1917, went on a hunger strike to bring to the public’s attention the fact that women had the democratic right to vote, even if they weren’t allowed to exercise it. Fae, who conceived of the play, brings Paul, a magnificently brave woman, to life with a light touch and intelligent humor, and makes plain how much we owe her.
