PHOEBE IN WINTER

by Jen Silverman

As Phoebe's presence changes the very structure of the family, a war that was once far away now threatens to reignite inside their home.

Reviews

Rachel Saltz, The New York Times

"Convincingly odd. Ms. Silverman has created a modern fairy tale, a little bad wolf whose lopsided grin reveals its crooked, bloody teeth."

Olivia Jane Smith, New York Theatre Review

"Phoebe in Winter gives new meaning to the phrase 'the war at home'...every other line comes out as a smartly put, hard-won truth you want to hold on to for later rumination."

Loren Noveck, NYTheatre

"[A] vivid and darkly unsettling fable about war and its consequences."
