IN THE PRESS
"JEREMIAH is a thought provoking play presented from a perspective that I hadn't considered until last night."
"Producing new and difficult plays can be a boon."
"The full effect [of Uncle Rooster], like a children's story gone horribly wrong, is a dystopic cartoon world where things don't quite fit together, where value and morality reveal intrinsic dissonances, and any possibility of a peaceful, just resolution disappears."
—Living Arts Chronical
LIVER FOR DINNER
"On press night, the crowd favorite seemed to be Tami Canaday's Liver for Dinner, a surreal play that demonstrates the impact of how something is said. It is intriguing."
SANTA TELLS A STORY
"Santa [Tells a Story] is an amusing glimpse at an unsettling urban experience."
Tami Canaday's stage plays have been performed in the U.S., Canada, and Japan.
