"The entire ensemble of 'The Realm' does a masterful job under Jessica Fisch's direction to bring this alternate reality to life; at no point do they confuse 'plastic' with 'wooden' or 'fake' with 'false.' Sarah Myers' world is delivered to the audience in a complete and seamless package that is at once believable and real. 'The Realm' is a place you won't soon forget and will leave you grateful for having the words to express how it made you feel."
- Karen Tortora-Lee, The Happiest Medium
"In 'The Realm' people surrender language in exchange for security and to fit into society. The show is different, exciting, suspenseful and a little weird... 'The Realm' written by Sarah Myers and directed by Jessica Fisch, is an hour-and-a-half production that really gets you thinking about language and its importance in society."
