Critics are raving about RECALL!


The New York Times says RECALL “deftly balances the humdrum and the horrific” and compares Eliza to Martin McDonough and Tarantino… 

BACKSTAGE (Critic’s Pick) says, “In the vein of George Orwell and Aldous Huxley, Clark’s play is very topical in our world of bullying and The Hunger Games… Colt Coeur continues its streak of grade-A downtown productions.” 

Time Out New York (Critic’s Pick) reports, “Directed by Colt Coeur’s Adrienne Campbell-Holt with special sensitivity to degrees of abnormality, and performed by a bang-up cast, Clark’s thriller deploys clean naturalism in the service of a story that turns out to have Philip K. Dick on the brain.”

Theatermania says “Eliza Clark’s terribly intense and vividly imagined new play Recall, now at The Wild Project, is, unlike too much theatrical fare, not easily forgotten…Director Adrienne Campbell-Holt handles this rich terrain with aplomb and is aided by John McDermott’s simple yet evocative set and Grant Yeager’s astute lighting that brings each scene into focus. The stage may be small at Wild Project, but Clark and her collaborators have created a big world.
