Select Praise:
“This show avoids all the traps of the polemic, treating this difficult subject matter with considerable nuance and complexity… the director, Megan Shuchman, moves the action swiftly and honestly, and the designer has forged quite a powerful design, made up of debris and tangled metal as a stand in for the mangled beasts whose carcasses litter this troubled and troubling farm.” -Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
