"Provocative, witty and filled with poetry, Claudia Barnett's plays sparkle on the page as well as on the stage. Her clever language and natural rhythms make these short plays wonderfully complex and thoroughly engaging. From her smart and hilarious contemporary take on Adam and Eve to her inventive dialogue that evokes the careful dance of romance, these six plays speak to Claudia's boundless imagination and ability to see into the heart of human relationships." — Emily A. Rollie, Artistic Director, Independent Actors Theatre

"At turns sly and heartfelt, down-to-earth and mysterious, sweet, bitter, and always bittersweet, these six plays and the men and women within them test and re-test our senses, challenging us to wonder how well we know our partnersand ourselves." — Carson Kreitzer, playwright

“‘I like the look of agony, because I know it’s true,’ says the murderous heroine of the new play No. 731 Degraw-street, Brooklyn. If you recognize that line as Emily Dickinson, then this Victorian-set, true-crime drama is for you.”                      — Nelson Pressley, The Washington Post

“You are compelled to think that this is what Ophelia would have been like, had she survived her dunking and had a better sense of humor.”      — Tim Treanor, DC Theatre Scene

“With all the chilling atmosphere of thrillers like Angel Street, the rich substance of a Victorian romantic drama, and the twisting madness of Dickinson’s poems, this fully-charged intense piece of theatre is a gutsy move . . . executed so well that I was thankful to be along for the ride.”           — Amanda N. Gunther, DC Metro Theater Arts
