    What the popular press said...

    "Under the suspense-generating direction of Gaye Taylor Upchurch, “Our New Girl” moves briskly through the twists of its plot, some of which are more predictable than others. The play also toggles a little awkwardly between its desire to keep us on edge and its pretensions to have something to say about the state of male-female relations at a time when professional women like Hazel have to make hard decision about how to allocate their time and energy."
    Charles Isherwood for New York Times

    "The script, by Dublin-born playwright Nancy Harris, contains some shocking violence — both verbal and physical — and director Gaye Taylor Upchurch deftly choreographs the scenes to make all of the blows land sharply. Throughout the two acts, your loyalties shift constantly among the four players until you're left to wonder, ''Who's the biggest sociopath?"
