Editorial Reviews

New Yorker
Christopher Shinn's well-plotted new drama has surprising nuance and sudden surges of emotion. The play offers several outstanding monologues, some tender, some searing, and one unforgettable.
NY Newsday
An unexpectedly compelling tale about those living the aftermath of a fictional legend's decade-old suicide.
NY Times
Christopher Shinn, an up-and-coming playwright of exceptional talent, trains his focus squarely on the unexceptional in ON THE MOUNTAIN, a gentle wisp of a play...Mr. Shinn sees and hears people as they are, and his greatest strength is his ability to reproduce onstage the clumsy poetry of natural human interaction. That skill is rarer than you might think.
Village Voice
Christopher Shinn is a writer who likes to notate encounters precisely...ON THE MOUNTAIN is so skillfully written.
