"With Confederates, Morisseau leaves the confines of realism that she has negotiated so well to this point in her career and offers a challenging new paradigm, here as a way to examine the familiar and evolving trials of Black women and their successes in America." --Exeunt NYC"Beautiful language that's wedded to tales of adversity -- the play is full of such paradoxes, another one being that Confederates is a work about racism that is truly funny." --New York Times"Morisseau's voice gets fiercer and richer the farther she gets from naturalism." --Vulture"Because Morisseau is best known as the accomplished author of straightforward social dramas like Pipeline and Skeleton Crew, the audacious shifts of timeframe and tone in Confederates come as a bit of a surprise. She pulls it off with power and finesse." --Time Out New York
