Reviews

"Hilarious satire."

"This play is a hilarious satire on our current political state. Bravo to Ms Henry for this one!"

- Morgana Watson

 
"Great fun!"

"Spot-on parody packed into a tight ten-minutes! Writer Henry knocks me out with her sharp sense of humor and perfect timing. An astute read on our current political climate - with yorkies. Would be delicious in performance."

- Rachael Carnes

 
"Sliding off my couch funny."

"One of my favorite short comedy plays on NPX, one of my favorite comedy plays in the history of short comedy plays! If you're looking for a smart comedy for your political-themed festival that speaks to the present struggle against Hate under the Trump administration, this is a definite must-choose play. Henry perfectly parodies the language of Trumpism that expresses xenophobia and supremacist ideology."
