Interview for The Summoning

 

 

Women of William's County
"....a perfect short, sharp shock!"
"Director Emily Lyon has amplified the essence of each of these recognizable female forces so that they bump up against each other in interesting ways, revealing their subtext and vulnerabilities. Each moment is electrified with the intensity of the character wanting dominance in the new story, and Lyon keeps the tension high and the pace galloping."
   -- Jacquelyn Claire, NY Theatre Guide
The Summoning 
(Winner: Best Direction, Best Production - sheNYC)
 
"THE SUMMONING is an often funny, often harrowing script that keeps you guessing — even after you think you’ve made a firm decision on what’s really going on. Not so fast — the only firm idea you’ll have is that three actresses, one director and a terrific new playwright really know how to put on a show.”

— Peter Filichia, critic emeritus, The Star-Ledger
 

"Very funny....[The Summoning] flows well, which is really difficult with the kind of language that's in the play."

— Robert A. K. Gonyo, Go See A Show Podcast

Interior: Panic

    *Best Bet    

"A well-conceived and imaginative production of Tennessee Williams' one-act preview for A Streetcar Named Desire that serves as a great introduction to the Southern classic or backstory for established enthusiasts.

...Directed with a balance of restraint and release by Emily Lyon, the show expertly reveals and disguises the mind and spirit of a woman who is harsh on society but even harsher on herself. Her struggles are palpable and relatable. One bad moment snowballs into others, and soon sets off a chain reaction that jettisons a once admired "dame" into a bleak present."
