Editorial Reviews

Connecticut Post
Fantasy interweaves with a hard, gritty reality.
L.A. Times
Harvests many laughs and finally a few tears.
New Haven Register
A fresh, loopy and ultimately crushing play that tickles us under the chin and in the ribs, only to rip out our vulnerable hearts...explodes with vitality and charm...blessed with Jones' uncanny ear for spoken dialogue, the characters leap off the stage as if propelled by rocket fuel.
NY Times
...Bright and engaging...boldly imagined...Mr. Jones unfolds his tale of pioneering science fueled by post-adolescent angst with pleasing agility.
San Diego Union-Tribune
Explosively energetic and touching...original wide-awake script...[a] hilarious evening.
Variety
Fantastical and funny...a heartbreaking study of a wounded and abandoned bird who finds refuge, strength and empowerment through her cyber-connections with the outside world...captures the speed, strain and surreality of a serious mental illness...reveals a lost child in a techno-world who is cracking up under the parental pressure of being the perfect girl.
