"This Is Fiction is the type of small, subtle play that there should be a dozen of every season, but there never is. That's because it's hard work, and it requires the collaboration of many talented artists serving under the careful leadership of a director like Shelley Butler,
whose achievement here is large."
"Megan Hart's drama runs on a low-key, domestic intimacy that pulls you further and further in, until you sit up and realize you care very much about what happens to this family."
"Its best quality, without a doubt, is its believability: you'll believe the characters, the story, even the set. The only thing you probably won't believe is that, according to the program,
This Is Fiction is Hart's first full-length play,"
"Michelle David, as Celia, toggles back and forth between irritation and warmth with startling finesse"
"Veteran film actor Richard Masur, meanwhile, is such an expert on the timing required for his role"
"Bernardo Cubria is spot-on"
"One must hope for much more to come from
The InViolet Repertory Theater Company."
