Actor's Express Artistic Director, Freddie Ashley said, "I have long loved Steve Yockey's writing, but I think with Pluto he shows a maturity in his craft and in his voice that really catapults him to a new level." He continues, "I was so proud to have produced Wolves last season and Octopus in 2008, and I'm ecstatic that we're getting to introduce Pluto to the world. Rare is the play with the right balance of intelligence, heart and theatrical innovation - Pluto delivers on all three."
