A New York Times Critic’s Pick!
“At one point I could not help but gasp in horrified delight, or maybe it was delighted horror — the two are closely intertwined in Robert Quillen Camp’s absurdist, outrageous Grand Guignol... its go-for-broke delirium is uncommonly satisfying.“ -Elizabeth Vincentelli

Helen Shaw on White on White :
“Expertly directed by Alec Duffy and Lori Elizabeth Parquet... there’s electricity in the way the production packs us all in so close together, about the clever way Quillen Camp ties the play to recent events, about the virtuosically deft orchestration of the characters and their tense efforts at reasoning and argument... it’s elegant writing, delicately juxtaposing what’s persuasive in this kind of [antiracist] work and what isn’t, and it’s precisely, even superbly, performed.” [full review in Vulture]
