"Eyen's work has a savage understanding heart." - The New York Times "Each moment [in Eyen's plays] is different and distinct, and the moments are connected to form a pattern. In that pattern, we see all we need to know of Eyen's people, but because it is discontinuous, we get the change to imagine more. And because his characters come from our myths, and the shape of his plays from our needs as an audience, it is just possible that we can see ourslves, and our situation, more clearly in them, even while they entertain us." - Michael Feingold
