"Ms. Henley shows how comedy at its best can heighten reality to illuminate the landscape of existence in all its mean absurdity." —NY Times. "Outrageous, funny, pathetic, and, as you may suspect from the title, fraudulent, these people are extracted from the fertile mind of a playwright who won the Pulitzer and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Drama in 1981 for Crimes of the Heart (subsequently released as a film in 1986). Henley filters her delectably skewed view of Southerners with a unique flair for instigating the improbable but possible. She continues in the poignantly comical vein that made some of her other plays (The Miss Firecracker Contest, The Wake of Jamey Foster, The Debutante Ball, and Impossible Marriage) so irrepressibly endearing." —CurtainUp. "It's a pleasure to again hear the sounds of Henley's distinct comedic voice, a deceptive lilt that often masks a deeper, darker side." —Associated Press. "Endowed with richly quirky characters, elegant writing and human behavior both funny and dark, FRAUD shows Henley at her best." —Hollywood Reporter.
