Reviews

  • "I was beyond pleased that the creative team made the stage adaptation of Hardy's work just as gritty and powerful as the original text." BroadwayWorld (PDF)
  • "It's from the schism between the moral and immoral, what those words mean and how they affect one's life, that the play draws most of its conflict. That conflict, though rooted in Hardy's late Victorian world, never feels distant or alien in this adaptation." Indy Week (PDF)
