SWIMMING IN THE SHALLOWS by Adam Bock
"SASSY, AFFECTIONATE, FUNNY, POIGNANT AND ULTIMATELY MOVING!
- Portland Phoenix, April 24, 2012
"A VERY WELL-CAST, WACKY AND SURPRISINGLY TOUCHING COMEDY!

- Portland Press Herald - April 22, 2013

"A screwy little jewel of a play ... It's as unconventional a conventional look at love as you'll find."
- The New York Times
"A sweetly absurdist view of life ... By staying resolutely in shallow, frolicsome waters, the play manages to achieve something unexpectedly, if quietly, profound."
- Village Voice
