The Overwhelming

by J.T. Rogers

Next Theatre Company

Chicago Tribune, Chris Jones

"It's Kimberly Senior's tour-de-force Next Theatre production...Senior achieves a heart-stopping level of dramatic tension...This is a visceral piece of must-see theater...This is surely the most accomplished work of Senior's career and one of the very best shows in the 28-year history of Next."

Time Out Chicago, Christopher Piatt

"Senior's production, so spartan in its acting and design but an intellectual and emotional bonanza, is almost completely in sync with the material...For the first 90 minutes, I was admiring Senior's 11-actor ensemble; for the last 20, I was so frightened I couldn’t remember my name."
