Sarah Michelson: Devotion

“When Sarah Michelson is on, her work brooks no resistance. There is an inevitability to it, and a relentlessness, from which you do not, cannot, look away.” —New York Times

“[Maxwell is] one of the few uncompromisingly original new voices in American theater, with short, monotonal plays that found the poetry in everyday banality and the numbness in sensational violence.” —New York Times
