…Nothing short of breath catching
– My Entertainment World

Keith Barker has a voice that deserves attention
– Derrick Chua, Intermission Magazine

Entirely relatable, heart-wrenchingly frank, and dazzlingly honest. What makes it special is how deftly Barker navigates emotional sucker punches, while each of his characters deal with their own shortcomings and gifts, and utterly without judgement from the author.” – Tara Beagan, acclaimed theatre artist & co-founder of ARTICLE 11
