BWW Review: KIN at Eve Theatre Company
by Keith Waits - Nov 8, 2016

Eve Theater Company opens its fifth season with Bathsheba Doran's play Kin. Year five always seems to be a milepost: a time for a company to take stock of itself and others. So I would note that this production seems to represent an important moment of maturity and ambition for Eve. It reaches for a subtlety and emotional range greater than most of their previous efforts. The company's mission of a focus on women led to early productions that featured small groups of women hermetically observed: aging prostitutes on a shared bench, or friends moving through marriage and divorces through the years. Most were casts of only women. (more...)

BWW Review: Tori Scott Provides Post-Election Catharsis in SEEING DOUBLE at Joe's Pub
by Troy Frisby - Nov 30, 2016

Early on in Tori Scott's SEEING DOUBLE, the woman of the hour deadpanned, 'I've been in a rut since birth.' If that's the case, we should all be so lucky. But on the subject of things that could be going better, throughout Scott's performance at Joe's Pub on November 13, the unofficial theme of the night was, 'Could this year get any worse?' With the election still looming large, Scott took the stage, explaining she'd been looking forward to the show because she was in need of some attention, before adding, 'Then Tuesday happened and I needed group therapy.'

Winner of the 1953 Tony Award for Best Play, The Crucible tells the story of a community consumed by fear, hatred, and a lust for power.

In Hello My Love, Agnieszka's daughter Elise confronts and reconciles the often conflicting worlds of a consuming self-oriented career and the other-oriented demands of a relationship and a family. The two worlds is most obvious in Book 3, Welcome Reluctant Stranger in which the heroine, Leilani, crosses lands and two quite different cultures.

It was new, different and refreshing to have a literary spin on the romance genre.' -Bookaholic Ramblings '....the book could've been ripped straight out of everyday life. It tells a love story the way it might have really happened, not overly flowerish or overly feel-good like you may expect from romance novels. I actually liked that the most about this book.' -Cassidy Crimson's Blog Praise for Welcome, Hello, Agnieszka! ISBN: 978-0996247429, published in 2014): '...a beautiful narrative ...an intricate, heart-wrenching coming-of-age story about family and love.' -GoodbooksToday Reviews '...character descriptions written to perfection with a unique POV that places you deep in her thoughts and feelings.' -5 Stars, Michael Alexander Beas for Readers' Favorite '...interesting, enlightening and, in some respects, heartbreaking. ... All families struggle with issues, this one more than most.' -4 Stars, Kathryn Bennett for Readers' Favorite Praise for Welcome, Reluctant Stranger (ISBN: 978-0996247436, published in 2015): 'Welcome, Reluctant Stranger spans across many genres, though it does so impressively, without losing the sense of the plot and characters. A brilliant love story, also so much else ... Expertly crafted with intricately woven layers ... ' 5 stars GoodbooksToday.com Reviews' 'A touching story about a woman who must confront her family's past. The carefully constructed story helps the reader connect to the characters on many different levels. Welcome, Reluctant Stranger is an engaging novel with layers of love, intrigue, twists and turns, and family secrets.' -5 stars - Self-Publishing Review ' ... a captivating story ... crisply written and plot driven. Journey knows how to create characters readers will love and a plot that makes them turn pages with anticipation.' -5 stars Reader's Favorite All three books are available in both print and ebook formats. About The Author: Evy Journey is a flâneuse (a female observer-wanderer) who writes about, and illustrates (oils, pastels, digital) what she sees that intrigues her. In a past life, with a now-dormant Ph.D., (University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana), and the primacy of her left brain, she researched, evaluated and developed mental health programs. But writing was her First Love.
