"Each of the six plays presented throughout the night has a wonderful story arc and intricate characters.
"Directors Peter James Cook and Stella Powell-Jones have crafted moments of such complete silence in the theater that only come from feelings of deep connection... And the cast, a true ensemble featuring Jon Bass, Lauren Blumenfeld, Eric Clem, Alex Herrald, Laura Ramadei, and Shayna Small, contribute well-rounded performances that are highly enjoyable and incredibly moving."

"There’s clearly something in this show for anyone not afraid to stare at life’s darker side – just like Lesser America itself."

"All the plays are refreshingly un-cynical, well crafted and are placed and paced perfectly to feel cohesive and individually and holistically satisfying... These plays are not to be missed and the artists featured in them are definitely ones to look out for in the future."
