The plays start out deceptively innocently—with the death of a dog, a funeral, a routine investigation, two women having a chat, a couple reuniting, two women arguing about cooking, an old woman reminiscing—but line after line, the past unfolds, making its presence felt in the present, presaging a tragic, terror-filled future. I wholeheartedly recommend these plays, not for the faint-hearted but for intelligent readers, who will find much more here than the tension generated by strong characters or the gripping story lines. These intelligent readers will find an extraordinary command of the playwriting craft, a delicate sense of timing, a profound imagination, a visual dexterity, a clever integration of personal and political – in short, everything that makes for great theater.
