Reviews of For Annie

What playwright Beth Hyland does so well is present For Annie with an authentic lens...thanks to Hyland’s genuine voice and a terrific cast, it’s as entertaining as [it] can possibly be, with an ending that’s still haunting me a day later. See it.
— Lauren Whalen, Chicago Theater Beat
For Annie,” the engrossing new play by Beth Hyland under Rebecca Willingham’s direction, currently receiving its all-too-short world premiere run with The Sound, takes the sadly well-weathered textbook of domestic abuse and translates it into the poetry of everyday life.
— Kevin Greene, Newcity Stage
