- "One of the most challenging and moving plays we've ever produced. Excellent roles for an advanced ensemble of actors - challenging dialects - and an important message. Dark and disturbing at times - but also incredibly funny - this is not only a love letter to the theatre with lots of meta-theatrical moments and inside jokes, but also testament to the innate good of humanity."
- Review by Kelly Groves, Martin HS Theatre, Arlington, Texas
- "Our Country's Good was a strong choice for our university. Our first year students read Just Mercy over the summer, and discussions about criminal justice systems were part of the curriculum this semester, and this brought 18th century British crime and punishment (and redemption) to the conversation. "
- Review by Jennifer Matthews, The University of the South, Sewanee, Tenn.
- "Our Country's Good was one of the most powerful shows we have ever done. It really stretched me as a director and my kids as actors. A wonderful learning experience!"
- Review by Charla Little, Red Oak High School, Red Oak, Texas
- "This play is brilliantÑwell crafted, intellectually challenging and artistically a tour de force. Our Country's Good is both an allegory and a symbolic representation of what theatre is about and what audiences and educational theatre should expect. The challenges presented in this piece are intelligent and comprehensive and allow for a full range of creative possibilities."
