Reviews

"In many of Henry's plays there's a beautiful moment of transformation or transcendence. Sometimes it's sweet and tender. In this play, it's something else -- it's horrific, and it's just right. And beautiful. Girrls may howl along with the female character after she responds to sexual harassment at work. Perfect for a showcase on #metoo or a showcase of Halloween plays."

- Asher Wyndham

 

"It is ON. When a playwright can capture in just a few pixels the power imbalance and incongruities of modern work -- you're in for a treat. The character "Her" is likely needed in almost every corporate environment. Or can she be hired out, as a temp? My only question -- When is this idea going to be franchised for a three-movie series and its sequels? Viva 'Her'!"

- Rachael Carnes

 

"Abso-freaking-lutely awesome. Some may call it wish fulfillment, but this is true literature of the highest degree. It speaks to the time we live in as Americans and also is badass enough to qualify as a genre piece. [...] A sharp play by Henry, a sharp writer."

- Bryan Stubbles

 

"This is by far the quickest in Henry's series and somehow maybe has the most layers as well. It made me think of Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf she encounters. Only this time Little Red isn't waiting for a woodman to save her - she's taking care of this one herself."
