Additional Info

A rising star in the theatre community, Eliza Clark, brings us her innovative psychological thriller Recall. Lucy makes people uncomfortable. There's something about her eyes. There's something about the way her mother's boyfriends keep disappearing. And there's something about the government agents on her trail. Radically imaginative and achingly plain, Recall explores our need to feel connected, understood and loved. No matter the damage, no matter the cost. After receiving rave reviews from New York theatre critics following the world premiere with Colt Coeur, Recall is making its way through theatres across the country, moving audiences to the edge of their seats.

Reviews

REVIEWS

“Richly written, terribly intense, vividly imagined." - Chris Komanek, Theatermania.com

“Ms. Clark hands this plot thread with emotional precision.” - Eric Grode, The New York Times

“Brilliantly disturbing...Creepy, suspenseful, impeccably acted.” - Suzy Evans, Backstage.com

“Clark has a knack for naturalistic dialogue (particular, as in Edgewise, among teenagers).” - Alexis Soloski, The Village Voice

“Clark commands her dialogue flawlessly; she’s got a silver ear and a fully wound stopwatch...I walked out with a blue tinge in my fingertips, thoroughly entertained, satisfactorily unsettled.” - Scott Brown, Vulture

CRITICS PICK! “Quietly chilling.” - Adam Feldman, Time Out

“A dangerous little razor of a play.” - Michael J. Fressola, silive.com
