“WordTheatre is a great freewheeling passionately engaged interpreter of contemporary short fiction. Whereas
other such enterprises are content to cherry pick a few classics in a predictable setting. WordTheatre finds work
that can bring about great performances in its constituency of first-rate performers, always in search of the
ineffable and the uncanny that are at the heart of the very best in world theatre. Their ambition is for the
new, the challenging, and the emotionally rich in my own case. I have never heard such wonderful and illuminated
performances of my own work.”
Rick Moody, author of The Ice Storm
