Reviews

For Fringe Festival Production

5/5 Ns “The actors are strong and the direction compelling; you’re sure to be shaken by the ending…A surprise Fringe treasure” – Jon Kaplan from NOW Magazine
“All Our Yesterdays is important. Showing how the horrors of the real world can affect two people caught up in them, this is a drama that is both an artistic success and important for the world. On all these grounds, this performance of All Our Yesterdays is a must-see.” – Randy McDonald from Mooney on Theatre

For Next Stage Production

“While All Our Yesterdays is set in the most desperate of circumstances, it has a compelling plot – and is as much about how difficult it is to have a sibling with special needs as its more urgent subject… Hung is a writer to watch.” – 3/4 stars from J. Kelly Nestruck, The Globe and Mail (Jan 8, 2016)
“Hung’s script contrasts these dire scenes with moments from their strained relationship at home”- 3/4 stars from Carly Maga, The Toronto Star (Jan 11, 2016)
“Playwright/Director Chloe Hung’s writing is especially sharp and the banter between the sisters is littered with witty, tongue-in-cheek quips[…]However, where Hung truly impresses is her ability to comment on larger issues in the dialogue without sacrificing naturalism.” – from Angela Sun, Mooney On Theatre (Jan 8, 2016)
