"Ferguson makes fine use of the venue, embracing the context of the bar setting, employing unique blocking for each, and utilizing just a few telling props…to support the narratives.”

"This blend of process with intentionality of final product makes for a seductive start. It’s hard not to feel special.”

“The highlight of the evening was Cathleen ni Houlihan, the play that many historians credit with sowing the seeds of the 1916 Easter Uprising.  Director Marcia Ferguson kept everything very tight and coaxed a brilliant performance out of the Gillane parents (Mary Pat Walsh and John Cannon) as they watch their hopes and dreams threatened by the alluring and irresistible vortex of a mysterious visitor.”

“For Cathleen Ni Houlihan, director Marcia Ferguson manages the right combination of light and dark, as the alluring Cathleen intrudes on the joys of family, money, and matrimony...These two linguistically rich classics are the meat of this hour-long show, co-produced by the Plays & Players Theatre.”

-Julia Klein, Philadelphia Inquirer

“One of the great delights of following Philadelphia’s lively theater scene is discovering in some unexpected place an imaginative and stunning production—this time the rarely staged Greek play, Aeschylus’s “The Eumenides,” the third in his revenge trilogy, the Oresteia...The breath of fun and gaiety we have felt from the start in the acting and costuming of this production now prevails.”

-Helen Buttel, Broad Street Review
