"Through a darkly serious parody and mimicking of the American character, The Histories of Gladys is a blistering funny, bittersweet assault on our bewildered society. Jane Young and Thomas Keith not only pay homage to performance art as a forum for political "kickboxing", but aim to reinvent it. Gladys ultimately forms a panorama of the archly conservative, morally corrupted people we rarely admit we are."
                                                                  Leonard Jacobs, The Village Voice

"The Histories of Gladys is quite extraordinary."
                                                                  Quentin Crisp, The New York Native

"Young and Keith's poems have a tone of knowing naivete, which is to say they insinuate acerbic observations in an innocent pose. The effect is that of a grown-up version of Curious George stories, which is both as playful and as arch as that sounds."
                                                                  Jan Stuart, New York Newsday

"Verbal bravura...You either get it or you don't."
                                                                  Theater Week
