CRITICS' PICK! A theatrical combo plate that proves unusually satisfying. Quietly moving, raucous, funny and unexpectedly touching, life’s darkest terrors and most visceral delights both play a role. It’s hard to keep from getting appropriately teary.—Charles Isherwood, New York Times
Unforgettable. Watching "A Small Fire," I almost felt that Adam Bock had written it to prove that we have, in New York, the best actors in the world.—Michael Feingold, Village Voice
With an ear for true-to-life dialogue, an eye for deftly developed characters and a nose for narratives that never lead where you expect, Adam Bock excels at taking audiences to surprising places.—Joe Dziemianowicz, NY Daily News
