An intriguing thriller in Haiti, showcasing an American doctor who experiments with a new infant feeding formula and along the way is coerced by CIA operatives to treat the commanding Haitian General who has only a few months to live. "... Havis's web of ironies - the lure of the rational Gold to the spiritual, decadent Le Croix; a mission of life turned to one of death; assassination as apolitical tool - is fascinating." -L A Weekly "Havis has done a beautiful job in sketching multi-faceted characters who never reveal themselves totally to the audience. The playwright has a cinematic writing style ... Havis blurs reality and the supernatural like filmmaker David Lynch did in his recent Blue Velvet." -Daily Press (Norfolk, Virginia) "HAUT GOÛT isn't only another political drama drawing metaphorical conclusions about sleazy U S involvement in a Caribbean nation (though Havis slips that knife in, too). Jules's odyssey is spiritual, as well as political, and he comes to realize that the foolish rantings of the bizarre, wildly decadent Le Croix have the kernels of truth a fool like Lear's deployed." -The Orange County Register "Havis is maddening and poetic, and Jody McAuliffe's direction is tuned to the playwright's building of tension. If region theater exists to discover and present the best of the new playwrights, Havis's HAUT GOÛT has certainly earned its place." -Irvine World News Weekly
