Chance Theater (Anaheim, CA)

“It is a play that sticks with you long after the lights have faded. Not to the ribs. But to the heart. And it lodges there more because of what isn’t said as much as what is said.”
— Joel Beers, OC Weekly

in a word is a stream-of-consciousness dramedy wherein Yee injects humor in the form of quips, jokes and remarks into the heart-pounding scenario. Absurdism and surrealism are among Yee’s tools in forging a play that induces within us the subjective reality experienced by Fiona and Guy.” — Eric Marchese, The OC Register
