“Since graduating from the Yale School of Drama in 1994, Edwin Sánchez has won more fellowships and foundation grants than most playwrights receive in a lifetime. Go see UNMERCIFUL GOOD FORTUNE and you will understand why.   The drama's premise is intriguing, and the action often riveting, but what really sets the play apart is the dialogue. Sánchez's characters can change moods on a dime.”Virginia Gerst, Pioneer Press   “Many years ago, playwright Tom Stoppard demonstrated the art of creating suspense to an audience....   ...Playwright Edwin Sánchez probably did not attend that lecture, but he certainly knows how to create the same mood in his latest work, UNMERCIFUL GOOD FORTUNE.... The audience is kept on the edge of their seats. While they cannot predict what will come next, each twist and turn of the plot seems exactly right as it unfolds.   The play centers on two Latinas: Fatima, a clairvoyant, uneducated hourly wage earner-turned- murderer, and on a successful, highly educated assistant district attorney, a single parent caring for her dying mother.   From this unlikely pairing, Sánchez builds a story that examines class, racial and gender conflicts, family and professional relationships, friendship, heterosexual and homosexual love, self-realization, personal worth, and the ethics of euthanasia....”Beverly Friend, Lerner
