"...Variety. Economy. Wit. Pathos. Timeliness. Spontaneity. Talent. Intimacy. Individuality of voice. Make a list of the many different things that make live theater spring to life and, to varying degrees, you will find them all among the 10 short world premiere pieces - a mix of playlets, improvs and readings - that comprise the 2017 edition of "TEN," The Gift Theatre's now annual spice box of a season opener."

Chicago Reader - Recommended

"...A gay man is subjected to conversion therapy a la A Clockwork Orange. A hetero woman confronts the superficially nice guy who pussy-grabbed her when they dated. A cheery millennial offers absurd tips on how to "beat" Trump-style authoritarianism. Gift Theatre celebrates itself each year with an evening of ten short new works contributed by members and friends; this time around most of the selections deal in blue-state anxieties. Pretty glum, all in all, though a few moments may make you put off killing yourself."
