Muckrakers

“Director Bridget Kathleen O’Leary keeps her actors pacing around the modest apartment (in which every inch of wall space is plastered with political posters, thanks to designer Alexander Grover). The tension builds as much from this edgy sense of caged animals testing the limits of their space as it does from Dohrn’s script.” – Terry Byrne, Arts Fuse

“With intelligent, balanced direction by Bridget Kathleen O’Leary, it is impossible to find a seam where actors Esme Allen and Lewis D. Wheeler end and their characters begin. There are many layers and twists in the story that O’Leary unveils with precise timing to build the suspense.” – Nancy Grossman, Talking Broadway
