Praise

“The wonder and charm of Heartless come from the very real passion behind it and the poetry within it.” —The Village Voice

“The playwright’s most inspired and imaginative work in years. . . . Shepard’s poetic sense of the absurdities of human congress is pitch perfect and the drama never flags.” —The Huffington Post

“As much as any American playwright, Mr. Shepard understands that every family is insane in its own special way. . . . [He] has secured his place in the hall of fame for portraits of domestic dementia.” —The New York Times
 
“Surreal and haunting.” —Newsday

“Spookily engrossing. . . . The play is full of silences that have the force of poetry.” —Bloomberg News

“Pure Shepard. . . . There are great, tantalizing lines like, ‘Another fable in the Los Angeles canon of hysterical imaginings,’ which may be a description of the play itself.” —The Philadelphia Inquirer
