“The best show at this year’s Humana Festival of New American Plays”
- Elizabeth Vincentelli, The New York Times
“Humana Festival’s ‘Do You Feel Anger?’: Searingly relevant and thoughtfully absurd.
We’re only halfway through the 42nd annual Humana Festival of New American Plays at Actors Theatre, but we now have an easy contender for “most talked about play of the festival.”
The relevance of this play in 2018 is searing — and during Women’s History Month, to boot. “Do You Feel Anger?,” at its core, is about the emotional labor women have to put in to protect male feelings."
Director Margot Bordelon is new to Actors Theatre, and what a debut to make!”
- Melissa Chipman, Insider Louisville
“This is one of the most outrageously funny plays the Humana Festival has ever presented. That is: It is outrageous. And it is hilarious. Nelson-Greenberg has a free-flowing, uninhibited — and sometimes raunchy — wit…. And under the fast-paced, insightful direction of Margot Bordelon, this collection agency is a hellishly funny cauldron of dysfunction.”
- Marty Rosen, Leo Weekly
“One question begets another, and another in Mara Nelson-Greenberg’s smart and challenging new play “Do You Feel Anger?”
The script, director Margot Bordelon and actress Villarin all work together to show how Sofia, as an office newcomer, has to internalize some of Eva’s coping mechanisms to succeed at her job. “A woman’s work is never done” is the suggested and painful message folded into this black comedy.
What makes this play worth seeing is the thought-provoking writing that reflects how one character’s ambitions in her professional life are keenly connected to her intimate life — and that idea it prescribes that real change starts with small steps on the profoundly personal level.”
