Reviews

"You seldom see plays that are both harsh and wonderful, but that is the balance that Polish-born playwright Martyna Majok strikes...she writes with such energy and charisma that the play's four characters feel vivid and real...The play never sugarcoats, yet it steers clear of bleakness because Majok's language is so entertainingly alive."

--The Washington Post on Ironbound

"[A] topical and insightful drama...a tough, moving portrait of a woman stuck in place."

--Time Out New York on Ironbound
"Ms. Majok's perceptive drama, with its bone-dry humor and vivid characters, illustrates how vulnerable people like Darja are, hostages to the vagaries of chance, unless they can manage to climb out of poverty."--The New York Times on Ironbound
"A knockout! It strikes at the heart of the immigrant experience."--The New York Times on queens
