Quotes & Highlights

“Having been lulled into a false confidence that I knew exactly where this show was heading, I was delightedly surprised by the unexpected plot developments following the seduction of Eve. And what an Eve! Played by Kendra Smith, this is certainly not the Eve from the Bible. This Eve kicks ass!”
“Part parable, part comic strip fable, part action drama, the play speaks powerfully to the unseen forces and symbols which dominate our lives.” -LA Weekly
“The writing is nothing short of top notch & the acting is a tour de force! God’s creations run amok! Robert Cohen directs what could have been a convoluted story into a masterpiece of ironies.”_ —Boy About Town_
“This is definitely not one you’ll take your Sunday school class to, but with the provocative way in which Reynolds re-engineers the cosmos, you’ll most assuredly leave with a few new ideas in your head.” —The Tolucan Times
“Chris Marshall is a pretty hot Satan, so who can really blame her?” —Backstage


Eve’s Rapture is the sixth play by Bryan Reynolds that the Transversal Theater Company has produced and the third that Robert Cohen has directed. Transversal Theater has toured all of its productions in Europe.
