Press Quotes

“Neveau’s latest is a murder investigation, similarly filled with subterranean currents of subtext beneath vividly colloquial dialogues … The murder in OLD GLORY occurs in Fallujah where — never mind the war — two American GIs who share a barracks drive each other to paroxysms of mutual loathing. (So no, Gertrude, this is not really a play about the war but about the homefront) … The latent violence simmering between the soldiers — one a devotee of graphic novels, the other of real novels — speaks head-on to why the United States can’t seem to generate a reasonable discourse with herself about anything that actually matters. The isolation of the three scenic compartments underscores that point … Like [Neveu’s] AMERICAN DEAD, it’s a penetratingly written rumination, a lament even, for something indescribable that’s been lost in this country — and to this country.” —Steven Leigh Morris, L A Weekly

“Haunting, intimate and intensely moving.” —Chicago Tribune
