Editorial Reviews

The National Post (Canada)
Dietz's retelling [of Goethe's story] is nimble and theatrically fluent...a taut, thematically-honed exploration of the order of marriage versus the disorder of passions.
Variety
FORCE OF NATURE, the clever new play by the remarkably prolific Steven Dietz, is one of those savvy period adaptations that provides an erudite evening of old-fashioned theater, while simultaneously offering its audience a decent helping of contemporary relevance. This smart new take on Goethe's should have a bright future across the country.
