WORD ON THE STREET
LOSING TOM PECINKA
"...soap-opera silliness and beyond...clever writing throughout."
- New York Times
The "actors are very funny in their straight-ahead seriousness. Mr. Wachterman is particularly hilarious as Tom’s boy-man brother, whose shambling doofus exterior hides a sharp scientific mind and more than a little bit of anger."
- New York Times
“LOSING TOM PECINKA at HERE Arts Center…remains the most exciting new work I’ve seen all year. Morgan is a meticulous director—her sense of timing is absolutely perfect…I was at the edge of my seat for every second of all three showings, delighting in each minutely calibrated detail. Morgan is what Robert Wilson would be if Robert Wilson were a goofball. As a writer, Morgan has a unique, strong, sometimes controversial voice that fits perfectly with her fun and playful directorial vision.”
-Young Jean Lee, two-time OBIE award winning playwright
PEE PEE POO POO PA PA FACE
“I have been thinking about [Pee Pee Poo Poo Pa Pa Face at Little Theater] all day long…it was such a perfect demonstration of how a play is built…with just wonderful timing of expectations/pacing of surprises/extension of beats until they damn near broke your back. Very impressive…”
-Jeff Jones, Playwright and Downtown Theater Guru
HELIX, HELIX: The Story of You, Me, Us & Them (A Sloan Commission)
"[HELIX, HELIX is]...deliciously meta-theatrical...gould and friends don’t seem too concerned about offending people and thank heavens! not that the troupe’s humor was particularly tangled up in blue, mind you. just that it was full tilt and unabashed. the writing (and set up) of the show is so close to a ’90s sitcom-cum-sloany-science-report that a less aware viewer might consider the writing bad. of course, the writing is good-bad and what saves it from being bad bad is gould’s choice of actors and deft directorial hand...my belly was full of this new vicious and victorious smart satire. gould + company are up to something, mes amis, may the pious theatre makers be ware!"

MORGAN'S PLAY (starring Tommy, Nicole, and Anna) PREMIERES IN DC! THIS IS WHAT CRITICS SAID..
“Morgan Gould’s new play, “I Wanna F---ing Tear You Apart,” is so authentically rendered you feel as if you’d hacked into someone’s phone and read all their texts.“ – Peter Marks, Washington Post
“I Wanna Fucking Tear You Apart shows every bit as much promise as Edward Albee’s early work, arguably more. That Morgan Gould can be mentioned in the penumbra of this playwriting giant is a tribute to her voice, craft, and conscience. “ – DC Theatre Arts
“Perhaps what is so good about this wonderful, laugh-out-loud, funny show is that it captures that one friendship/relationship everyone has had. That one that seems almost too good to be true. The one that defines you, just when you need defining, and helps guide you out of awkwardness. The one that, if you aren’t careful, will swallow you whole if you don’t let it go at the right time. And, it does it without being overly sentimental, or cheesy. It aims for a bittersweet spot and sticks the landing, thanks to a great script and direction—both done by Morgan Gould—and superb acting. I Wanna Fucking Tear You Apart is a comic jewel masking the bruised heart we all carry.” – DC Theatre Scene
“Morgan Gould has written a play that captures central and poignant moments of experience.” – Jane Franklin, DC Metro
