This play makes you think, makes you worry, makes you laugh and then be dismayed by the fact that you're laughing. I saw Drama (Pilot Episode) in its premiere production and was super-impressed. Glad to see that Karen Hines' words are as biting on the page as they were on the stage. On the page, Drama reads like a graphic novel – only the vivid pictures are drawn in your mind.

Glad to see that Karen Hines' words are as biting on the page as they were on the stage. On the page, Drama reads like a graphic novel – only the vivid pictures are drawn in your mind. The themes are bold (soullessness, inexplicable grief, material hunger) but the play is very funny and ultimately hopeful, and Hines writes great dialogue in this "pilot episode" that would sound good in any high-end cable drama. The play moves like TV drama, too: lots of through lines following anxious, cool characters. At first it seems as fractured as contemporary life ... until it becomes clear that every scene from top to tail is strung together with the delicate but persistent thread of the collective human soul. A great read, a powerful effect, and one of my favourite plays in a very long time.

    Perhaps, being a wanna-be Swampmaster living in a Gotham on the prairies, I am a little biased, but this play seems to be saying some vital things that need to be heard. It is weird in a way that makes perfect sense.

    It's a very interesting read. Not something I would immediately flock to, but it has it's moments. It's a nice short read that explores what it means to have a soul and be alive.
