"Three Women Mourn the Apocalypse was about emotions, and how we can’t protect ourselves from them. We are at their mercy." - Dana Ewachow, Mooney on Theatre

"...this is a play that explores the marginalization of some people in Melina and Samantha’s world, but also in the one in which you and I live." - Joe Montague, Riveting Riffs Magazine
