“A very stimulating new play…preoccupied with matters of linguistics and, more specifically, about how we all take a leap of faith every time we open our mouths…Haunting.” —Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune on The Language Archive
“A finely wrought drama.” —Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times on Durango
“Delivers a moving meditation on love, loss, and the emotional power of food. Anyone who’s ever shared a quiet late-night meal with a loved one, especially one who’s no longer here, will find much to relate to.” —Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter on Aubergine
“A cozy, effective little chiller…Coolly imparts insights about the transmission of evil in a globalized world, where actions a continent away can spread their malign influence to the suburb next door.” —Charles Isherwood, New York Times on The Piano Teacher
“Undeniably topical…Cho is curious about the intersection of private and public selves, the way psychology and culture mutually express each other. This is a small play, but before you realize it, its rippling current has taken you far from the safety of shore.” —Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times on Office Hour
