Praise for The Providence of Neighboring Bodies

★★★★ Sharp, funny writing, which pulls absurdity from the mundane... I won’t forget it in a hurry.
— The Guardian
★★★★ An incisive examination of the disunited state of America ... both extremely funny and provocative, using the absurd to point out the thorny underbelly of bigotry and xenophobia while highlighting how isolated we are in the current political climate... A piece that challenges as well as entertaining you throughout, this is an entirely unique play that will make you think, and leave you wanting more.
— The Skinny
(A) strangely absorbing…thought-provoking oddity that boldly sidesteps conventional drama in favour of something quieter, weirder, distinctly its own.

Praise for intelligence

Gripping... It’s exciting, too, to watch women take on the kinds of roles and wield the varieties of expertise that have mostly been accorded to men... “Intelligence” has a velvet-glove grip that’s neatly unrelenting. There’s no negotiating with that.
— The New York Times
Excellently written, intense, and thought-provoking. Its characters’ high-stakes struggle for power and control, both politically and personally, is compelling to watch.
— TheatreScene.net
★★★★★ Intelligence doesn’t just pass the Bechdel-Wallace test, it raises the bar for what a feminist production can be... Intelligence delivers a flawless performance.
— Opplaud
In knocking three smart, uncertain, complicated women against each other in a room, Banner concocts a wonderfully satisfying theatrical space. That space is unashamedly political, intellectual and female. Most exciting of all, it is unpredictable. More of that, please.
— Exeunt



Praise for The Sister

★★★★ Gripping... told with punchy, slick dialogue and very good acting...both mesmerising and memorable... the tale remains in your head long after you leave.
— The Edinburgh Reporter
Eric John Meyer’s engagingly strange play The Sister takes a familiar domestic set-up and plays games with it ... Pleasingly weird in a dreamlike way, and New York company Dutch Kills is not short of imagination.
— The Stage

“A fever dream ... at once thrilling and terrifying ... unpredictable and chilling… it defies genre and expectation in artfully embodying the panorama that is the human condition… It is gratifying to watch and inspiring to discover such bold new voices.”

— New York Theatre Review

★★★★ [A] Beautifully realised production that delights... This is a play that revels in its strangeness... This production is invigorating, captivating, and adventurously bizarre. The fascinating dynamics and well-crafted performances make for a gripping show.
— Broadway Baby
Brings to mind David Lynch’s Twin Peaks or Blue Velvet
— The List
Meyer’s bluntly funny and mean play proves to be something like his mysterious offstage machine itself: abrasive, hurtful, but inexplicably necessary.
— Backstage

Praise for Selkie

★★★★
— Opplaud
Selkie should not be missed.
— Reviews Hub
Impresses... unique with unspoken ideas and symbolism galore... Director Matt Dickson’s vision and the cast’s character choices add yet more layers.
— Theatre is Easy
Selkie is a fascinating play that’s been skillfully staged. The piece never becomes pedantic, but allows the messages to land as the characters discover themselves.
— Exeunt
Vibrant performances... superlative presentation.
— TheaterScene.net

PRAISE for In Quietness

Exquisite moments of vulnerability and strength exhibited on stage...smart, specific, relaxed, and un-apologetically character driven.
— RG Magazine
I was extremely impressed... brilliantly written script that raises many questions about gender roles in modern marriage.
— Applause, Applause
...this dialogue is compelling, and Ms. Moench demonstrates a keen interest in human thought, behavior and relationships... It’s enough to inspire faith in her future plays.
— New York Times
In Quietness dares to get deep and ask a lot of important questions.
— Theater Is Easy

This clever two-hander is an inventive take on the apocalyptic genre, a commentary on every religion that involves an End of Days and a reflection on our current political situation, all in one ... utterly gripping... mesmerizing

Praise for Adventure Quest

This is the show for you if you love old style computer games, complete with eighties synthetic music and graphics... The ensemble is dedicated and performs well, with Edward Bauer as the Hero, particularly giving his all...The show is fun and plays on the nostalgia that exists for childhood computer games.
— Edinburgh Spotlight
Adventure Quest is a loving homage to the great point-&-click adventure games of the eighties and nineties... This play will be an instant delight... The show is inventive, unique, and really really funny.
