"Sky Blue Theatre’s concept and format for the Cambridge Theatre Challenge is a clever one that is accessible to all aspiring playwrights out there and one that deserves greater exposure. Based on what was seen during the evening’s performances, this reviewer will be actively encouraging writers to enter this competition in the future."
