World Premiere at City Theater, May 2018

 

“A play just staged at the Public Theater says, with considerable authority, that theater ought 'to hold, as ‘twere, the mirror up to nature' — to discover, describe and celebrate who we are, and to warn us as well.  Carla Ching’s Nomad Motel now having its world premiere at City Theatre, certainly does that, and in the most familiar arena of all in American theater, the family. But it engages us in a fresh way, so the recognition creeps up, culminating (for this father and grandfather, anyway) in an ultimate exchange about the tribulations of parenthood that struck a huge chord with the opening night audience..” -- Christopher Rawson  Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
