THE GEORGIA STRAIGHT (read the review)

“Sean Devine’s Except in the Unlikely Event of War is overflowing with intelligence and wit….It’s like trying to figure out a Rubik’s Cube while being told excellent jokes.”

“Very, very funny…How many plays have so much intelligence to contain?”

“There’s gorgeous acting from Sean Devine and Robert Moloney.”

GAY VANCOUVER (read the review)

“Good theatre can entertain or make you think. Really good theatre does both. Except in the Unlikely Event of War is really good theatre.”

“Devine proves himself once again a master of political theatre.”

“Sean Devine abandons the American politics of his 2011 hit Re:Union to take on the politics of fear and, by association, the Harper government.”

“Richard Wolfe’s deft direction seamlessly moves the action.”

“There are some terrific performances here, particularly Robert Moloney.”
