Reviews

Praise for Sheila Callaghan

"[Callaghan] push(es) her audience's buttons with an aggressive treatment of some of the darker corners of the human psyche." --The New York Times

"Sheila Callaghan seems to have put third-wave feminism, Gen-Y gender confusion and macho writerly clichΓ©s in a blender set to high speed." --TimeOut New York

"[Callaghan's] plays defy categorization. They are sexy, punky, smart, sophisticated, literate, edgy, tightly woven, big, crass, witty, exquisite. They swell with moments of the unreal but never let go of a narrative thread. They expand and contract to underscore everyday grit and epic ache." --American Theater

"Post-feminist punk incursions into the poetic turf of early Sam Shepard." --LA Weekly

"Callaghan has a keen sense of language as an act of aggression." --Los Angeles Times

"[Callaghan's] playful sense of language and her attunement to her characters are enthralling." --TimeOut Chicago
