Reviews
"Skillful and moving, Pocatello is another of Hunter's explorations of community and isolation in Idaho, humanely rendered and shrewdly structured. Hunter's writing achieves a new level of technical complexity from the opening scene." --David Cote, Time Out New York

"The Few is a compassionate, gently hued drama about lonely lives. Mr. Hunter writes with unusual insight into, and empathy for, people whose lives have settled into sad stasis, or strategic withdrawal." --Charles Isherwood, New York Times

"A Great Wilderness is an affecting drama that strengthens its hold on you bit by unpredictable bit...The playwright's wide-angle view of humanity is evident again, as is his willingness to upend our expectations." --Don Aucoin, Boston Globe

"Hunter is a welcome theatrical voice from the American West. In Rest, Hunter mixes quirkiness with poignancy in a drama that elicits steady laughter by juxtaposing stark facts of mortality with existentialist aches and neurotic pains. Hunter has a gift for capturing the fine-grained textures of daily interaction." --Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times

"A Permanent Image totters at the edge of realism, a fusion of Midwest Gothic, with clattering notes of absurdism. Hunter is adept at coming up with striking images. You'll be sustained not just by the question of where this play is going, but also by the empathy you'll find yourself feeling for the characters." --Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
