REVIEWS

William Triplett: “ Rachael Carnes has a gift for turning the flotsam/jetsam of pop culture and pop sensibility into deliciously barbed humor that sort of gently rips our times. Wonderfully absurd on one level, yet perfectly logical on another, this short piece will make you laugh, cringe, and ponder — sometimes in the same moment. Forget trials without charges or waking up as an insect; the real Kafkaesque nightmare is contemporary language. Take a ride on this surreal train — you’ll be glad you did! ”

Jennifer O’Grady: “ Super-fun play with the delicious absurdity of Beckett or early Stoppard. Would love to see this performed! ”

Scott Sickles: “ I feel called out. In more ways than one. I feel as though these two characters each represent aspects of myself, not just any aspects but “areas of concern,” and that the off-stage character in 14B is my true avatar in this Carnesian universe, which is disconcerting as I now see myself as an off-stage character being called out by on-stage characters representing some of my more aggressive personality flaws. Yet, I enjoyed the play immensely even while it was indicting me, though I’m not sure I understood it, which, given the genre, is probably preferable. I had fun! ”
