About this Event

Actor and director Austin Pendleton writes:

Congratulations. "DeliKateSSen" totally deserves all the accolades it is receiving. I read it a few days ago and have been haunted by it and pondering it ever since. It's beautifully written and irreplaceable and urgent. I'm honored that you thought of me for it. I would love to play Franz Becker. The character is fascinating to me.

Actor Jamie Farr writes:

"Atkins play is compelling, powerful. I just could not stop reading it. It can remain a secret, but I cannot help but wonder if this was an actual story of people Atkins interviewed or knew. The projections are wonderful added touches. Atkins is a wonderful talent and should be proud of this piece of work. Bravo."

Sandy Staggs, Carolina Curtain Call

“DeliKateSSen” is a riveting portrait of a family thrust into turmoil with one twist after another that excoriates a festering wound of hate and trauma with genuine pathos in an emotional, visceral flood of all of your senses.

Dean Yannias - Talkin' Broadway

I think they have a winner! DeliKateSSen is quite well plotted, and doesn't go where I thought it was going to go, but it all fits together tightly, with an extra little kick at the very end!
