REVIEWS

Recommendations on New Play Exchange

I had the pleasure of hearing a recent reading of this engrossing short play, an unusual look at artificial intelligence with a wonderfully surprising twist. Lots of food for thought here. Well done! JENNIFER O’GRADY

This is satisfying short science fiction. Jack Levine may include a twist in this 10-minute drama, but that isn’t what the story is about. Instead, the twist serves to tell part of the story, to reflect upon the theme of “The Beauty of a Rose.” Nicely written. STEVEN G MARTIN

An entertaining and thought-provoking look at the value of humanity.REX McGREGOR
