Press Quotes

“AMERICAN OUTLAWS by Adam Seidel is a play with surprising twists and turns. Mike is hired as a hit-man by Mitch. Mike is a dangerous, duplicitous character and Mitch is a very nervous accountant who has gotten into some serious financial problems. It is soon revealed that the men have a common love interest, Mitch’s wife, Susan. As this complex story unfolds and the tension mounts, you will be on the edge of your seat.” —Marina Kennedy, Broadway World

“Seidel’s script is a marvel of intonation and unspoken words lurking beneath Michael and Mitch’s tense dialogue … [It is] a great script.” —Paul Friswold, Riverfront Times

“Dialogue is sharply written, and secrets are revealed in a suspenseful way.” —Snopes Theatre
