"Mr. Shinn is among the most provocative and probing of American playwrights today."—The New York Times
"Chris Shinn explores politics and ethics without moralizing and finds justice and beauty in intimate life, keenly observed and rendered scrupulously, unapologetically, fearlessly . . . I admire his work enormously."—Tony Kushner
