"Washburn has established herself as one of the most formally innovative playwrights working today."--Alexis Soloski "Guardian "
"Washburn is not your ordinary playwright...The dialogue is often glib, funny and heartfelt, making Antlia a sheer joy...Washburn's witty, surprising language makes you laugh in self-recognition, then gasp at a turn into poetic intensity. I think everyone should see Anne Washburn's plays."--David Cote "Time Out New York "
"Anne Washburn provides a realistic, disarming ghost tale, invigorated with ruminations about time and space...Antlia Pneumatica is a tender examination of everyday concerns, including lapsed friendships, regrets, parenting and death, with dark humor and some supernatural undertones."--Jennifer Farrar "Associated Press "
