A play by Amy Herzog, who teaches playwriting in the Bryn Mawr College Creative Writing Program, has earned an enthusiastic review from The New York Times‘ Charles Isherwood. After the Revolution, the chronicle of a proud family of Marxists that faces new revelations about its revered patriarch, is a “smart, engrossing play,” in Isherwood’s estimation.

“Just keeping track of the various branches on the family tree might seem daunting, but Ms. Herzog elucidates the personal history of three generations of Josephs with impressive ease, in scenes that crackle with lively, natural dialogue,” Isherwood writes.

The play’s run at Playwrights Horizons’ Peter Jay Sharp Theater has been extended through Dec. 12 after earning raves from Variety, The New York Daily News, and New York magazine, and others, in addition to the Times‘ thumbs-up.
