Praise for Iphigenia and the Furies (on Taurian Land): "The comic timing is flawless; some of the contemporary one-liners could feel glib in less skilled hands, but here they zing. The characters are all emotionally credible, while still bemused by the way the gods have screwed up their lives." --Martha Schabas, The Globe and Mail
Praise for Antigone: "His adaptation of Sophocles' Antigone both relocates this Greek story to reflect Ho's Chinese heritage and directly challenges the narratives that its audience of 12- to 18-year-olds may be hearing in their classrooms right now, while empowering them to do something to change it." --Carly Maga, Toronto Star
