- NS Reviews

"Dan Bray has been writing plays that meld Shakespeare’s language with our own contemporary speak for years and his command of this very specific skillset is clear. He also knows how to mine every nook and cranny of his ideas for fun, silliness, and laughs. All of this is on playful display in Knight of the Bat 2. "
