Press Quotes

“FIGHT GIRL BATTLE WORLD, the latest lark by the proudly lowbrow Vampire Cowboys Theater Company … The playwright, Qui Nguyen, clearly knows his Star Wars, and while he has given his story a more topical update — environmental disaster and imperialism play a role — he has really nailed the stilted, jargon-rich style of writing that the saga’s creator, George Lucas, is famous for. FIGHT GIRL BATTLE WORLD dispenses with the hipster distance and indulges the embarrassing passion of an obsessed fan … It’s theater for sci-fi nerds …” —Jason Zinoman, The New York Times

“From the refreshingly off-kilter collective known as the Vampire Cowboys Theater Company comes FIGHT GIRL BATTLE WORLD, an action-packed sci-fi saga that blends punch-ups and parody into one delicious mix. Set in a futuristic universe (surprise, surprise) where humanity is nearly non-existent, FIGHT GIRL revolves around E-V, a hardnosed prizefighter and the last known female human in the galaxy …” —Tom Fay, Show Business Weekly

“… Qui Nguyen’s script is dotted with spiky humor and … politically tinged jokes …” —Ron Cohen, Backstage
