What people are saying
"Dark, creepy, and unnerving, but also terribly funny."
"I saw FAMILY on Saturday night. Weird as fuck. Twisted as shit. Moments of extreme discomfort..
NOW THAT'S A SATURDAY NIGHT!!!! I loved it."
"Behind all the funhouse mirrors and surreal madness, however, is a very moving story about the emotional damage caused by distant parents and family secrets."
"Celine Song's FAMILY is an amazing play that I can only describe as Theatre of the Absurd with elements of clown, fairy tale and horror story. It is at times very dark but also very funny."
"A dark, intense, creepy, and somehow also funny play. It’s got a Lars Von Trier meets Waiting for Godot kind of vibe. Horrific things with a lot to say underneath it all. The tech elements… set, music, and especially the lighting, absolutely wowed me."
