"Nothing complements the Halloween season like a creepy psychological thriller,
so playwright Owen Panettieri (and a skilled trio of actors) have arrived just in time." 
- Stanford Friedman, Front Row Center (The Lights Are On, 2023)

"Panettieri’s characters are fleshed out and unabashedly human.

- Austin Fimmano, Plays To See (Meaningful Conversation, 2018)

"A masterclass in building character and drawing out tension." 
- NY Theatre Guide (A Burial Place, 2016)
