Review:

"A fiendishly smart writer" who writes "intelligent and provacative" plays about "the limitations of memory and the complexities of perception." -- The Chicago Tribune

"Like the best plays of Ionesco, Albee, and Pirandello, ian pierce merely hints at the deepest level of truth." -- Justin Hayford- Chicago Reader

Pierce is determined to fashion dense, cryptic works that confound as much as they elighten us. -- Nick Green- Chicago Reader
