I’m so delighted to have had the opportunity to write with such a talented co-writer, Harrison Young. RAFT has been such a wonderful project, and we’re both ecstatic to hear that the press loves it too! Take a look at the reviews from our World Premiere in Knoxville, TN:

”This play never stops surprising you, in the best way […] incredibly dynamic and moving — to the point where it’s now one of my favorites.”
RAFT can be admired on a number of levels, most assuredly as a tremendously demanding and revealing vehicle for two actors. In this production, both Corbitt and McGhee constructed believable, colorful personalities, mastered the play’s unusual movement limitations, and delivered crisp timing and snarky subtleties throughout the humorous conversational banter.”
“[The bouncy castle] does lend to the absurdity of the conversation.  There’s a very large metaphor in there—several—but the conversation itself is very realistic.”
““RAFT” is a symbolic and humorous take on the journey from adolescence into adulthood for the millennial generation.”
“It’s sort of an existential comedy called RAFT. These two people at a birthday party get swept out to sea in a bouncy castle, so think Alfred Hitchcock’s LIFEBOAT with a bouncy castle.  It’s a very funny play until you start wondering if they’re actually going to survive it or not.”
“You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more unique set piece than the one at the center of the featured production at this year’s New Play Festival in Knoxville.”
”Humor aside, RAFT is also not afraid to delve into some less lighthearted subjects […] While there will be laughs, the play promises buckets of tension as well.”
