REVIEWS

 "The charming originality of CHALK’s graphical production concept is reason enough to hightail it to the show." - John Stoltenberg, DC Metro Theater Arts

"CHALK is an intriguing take on an ancient play with a dash of newness and a lovely band of rag-tag characters played to the hilt." - Kelly McCorkendale, DC Theatre Scene

"CHALK paints in bright colors, and this is one crew that relishes getting its hands dirty." - Tristan Lejeune, Brightest Young Things
