 “Aside from some beautiful dialogue and a delightfully optimistic spirit, the greatest strength of this play is that its characters confound all stereotypes. Most plays about misfits in motels go for easy archetypes. By contrast, Owens’ piece of rural Gothic not only respects the human spirit...but also celebrates the romance of the interstate.”Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune   “TULSA LOVECHILD straddles the delightfully absurd and painfully real without cracking at the seams.”Robin Rauzi, Los Angeles Times   “What Owens has given us is a post-Jack Kerouac look at the forces that can go bump in the night in this country. … every wise, wistful, whimsical, darkly comic, quasi-tragic note of Owens’ script is played with truth and wit. There is a cartoonish quality to the way all their fates coalesce, but there also is truth and genuine sentiment in it. And therein lies the gentle magic of this play.”Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun Times   “With tongue-in-cheek, but with generosity of spirit, author Greg Owens concludes that goodness and decency survive in unexpected nooks and crannies and souls, even as the forces of hypocrisy and darkness constantly are reborn.”Jonathan Abarbanel, Windy City Times   “...oddly intoxicating road story, a bittersweet comedy that will likely have particular resonance for baby boomers who grew up during the flower-child era and witnessed its aftermath....   ...the play is breezily amusing and very intelligent....”Les Spindle, Back Stage West
