These people. My heart. We were together for 5 months writing a thing. So thrilling to be together again, and hear it come to life with actors.
Thanks to Lambda Literary and Pia Cortez for her review of The Island Dwellers.
“The eleven stories that make up this collection are raw, intense in their longing, and tender in the most unexpected ways… Silverman shines in this collection the way sunlight hits the surface of water, forming rivulets of gold.”
The Island Dwellers in the New York Times. “These stories are irresistible, delivering a portrait of contemporary relationships that, although bleak, is shot through with veins of real connection.”
The Island Dwellers in the Wall Street Journal:
I am not a person who likes being on a stage. In groups of more than 2 people, I attempt to become one with the back row. (OK, maybe 10 people. Being in a TV writers’ room has trained me for the better.) But the Lillys are an amazing celebration of women in theatre, of women creating networks of advocacy and support, of allies who show up to do the same. And if you’re going to fly back for an evening in NYC, the best company for that evening would be a room of playwright ladies like Marsha Norman, Julia Jordan, Sarah Ruhl, Jocelyn Bioh, and many many others.
