“One of the finest playwrights at work today. Mr. Hunter’s plays are notable, or rather remarkable, for their laid-back simplicity and the depth of the compassion he shows for his characters.” 

The Wall Street Journal

“Hunter's sense of place is richer and more peculiar than any other American playwright working today.”
