"The tension between authoritarianism and adolescent self-expression leads to a climax as every bit as cathartic as you could hope for..."

"At times hilarious, at times heart-rending, the play brings to mind a lovechild born of Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale and Netflix’s Sex Education. Sister Mary Paul’s steely, almost machine-like manner expresses well the unbending nature of Holy Scripture while Evie’s rebellion expresses the folly of youth, moving too far too fast. As conservatism, both secular and otherwise, rises in our society, this is a timely play which raises deep and valid questions about how we subjugate young females in the name of protecting them." -- N. Moeed, review from Chatham Life and Style

"This play is so satisfying. It's like what I *wanted* Dead Poets Society to be-- a drama-filled boarding school tale, but with girls! Feminist, raunchy, funny, punchy, twisty, truthful. Plus, Evie is one of my favorite protagonists in recent memory."  -Ruthie Allen, recommendation posted to New Play Exchange
