siren song 06Here’s what the critics have said about Deborah Zoe Laufer’s Sirens:

“Imaginative and funny…I can see Sirens showing up in just about any theater, and I hope it has a long life in regional rep. The humor and warmth, as well as the understanding of what it means to be married a long time, are things that never go out of style.” –

“Hilarious and ingenious describe the plot twists…’   —Theatreworld Internet Magazine



“A play that is bound to get many [subsequent productions] is Deborah Zoe Laufer’s Sirens, a cleverly constructed and written comedy about restoring the passion in a long-term marriage, or at least stopping it from disintegrating after 25 years.” The “play is… probably Laufer’s most audience-friendly and potentially commercial work yet. . . Laufer’s depiction of the Gameboy-playing siren song 08siren and Rose’s pursuit of her own high school crush give the play a few tasty twists, plenty of laughs and, ultimately, some poignancy.” – Palm Beach ArtsPaper
