“I saw EAT THE RUNT … I loved it … [a] remarkable, original comedy … scenes that are brilliant set pieces of — alternately — satire and comic flights of fancy … It’s surreal, it’s treacherous, and it’s sweet … Avery Crozier, the astonishing young playwright who created EAT THE RUNT, is toying with ideas of perception, political correctness, and societal and cultural norms throughout this play, and always on multiple levels … it’s smart, sassy, funny, and devastatingly original.” —Martin Denton, nytheatre.com
“… clever comedy centered on a job applicant’s bizarre series of interviews at an art museum … the script contains … wit, intelligence, and twists …” —Robert Dominguez, Daily News
“… a clever and inventive script … a dazzling new work that captures the very essence of theater.” —Barbara & Scott Siegel, theatremania.com
