"It's a testament to Churchill, Van Der Merwe and the cast that the play's ambiguities intrigue rather than frustrate. Escaped Alone is so engrossing it's easy to sit back and surrender to its surreal flow—to bask in peculiarities"
- Bennett Campbell Ferguson, Willamette Week
"A Churchill play is often like an alley-oop. She tosses up a perfectly placed floater and asks others to jump up and bring it down. She asks those producing, directing, and acting in her plays to bring it to life by trusting their own interpretations.
Well, Churchill tossed up the floater and Shaking the Tree slammed it down."

"Poets, language lovers, and speculative fiction fans will be drawn in by the meaningful and frequently hilarious digressions. Any line could be a story in itself."
- Suzette Smith, Portland Mercury
