THE LAST WIFE by Kate Hennig

"Under the skilled direction of Kelly Galvin the play ... gives us more than just the story; it brings us the people - quirks, attitudes, lusts, loves and hates - with the intensity of witnessing our neighbors through their windows that have been left open and their doors left ajar." Berkshire Bright Focus

"Kelly Galvin moves the people, the play, and the modernization with ease." Berkshire EDGE

"Rich in nuance and acted with an eye toward distinctive, individuated characters. Insightful and engaging." Albany Times Union

"Superb acting... a kind of intimate epic." "I have been a fan of Kelly Galvin ever since her wonderful performance as Madame de Tourvel in Dangerous Liaisons with Shakespeare and Company [...] Even more impressive now is her direction of Kate Hennig’s The Last Wife." The Berkshire Review

"...simple yet sumptuous... Kelly Galvin and her all-female creative team deliver an intimacy to the play [...] that pulls us instantly into the story. The crisp and clean production design is simple yet also contains elegant and even somewhat magical touches." Talkin' Broadway Regional, Phoenix
