"Very moving…a comedy of kinships…a lot of fun, full of telling cultural touchstones…smartly directed by Karla Hartley, gets a terrific performance from [Martha] Wilkinson, who deftly treads the line between screwball comedy…Wreen is a wisecracking, brassy dame whose rants are hilarious…all takes place on Scott Cooper's ingenious set." -John Fleming, Tampa Bay Times
"Written by Brooklyn playwright Madeleine George, 7 Mammoths has a youthful exuberance…Martha Wilkinson plays Dean Wreen as a ball of brilliant energy…Stefanie Clouse nearly steals the show as Andromeda…The play’s dialogue teems with a zany blend of cultural and academic references…[and] will leave audience members musing about the preservation of love." -Gina Vivinetto, ARTICULATE
“Charming… moving…Stefanie Clouse as space cadet Andromeda, is delightful to watch…the theatrical jackpot. Perfectly played by Clouse, she’s a kind of post-hippie flower child, out to find the sweetness of a world too often encased in a bitter shell…Another strength is Karla Hartley’s intelligent direction.” –Mark E. Leib, Creative Loafing
“A work of insight and originality for modern audiences…Succeeds on many levels. Madeleine George has written a sophisticated, often hysterical and ultimately moving play.” -triCityNews, New Jersey
“A smart, clever and highly promising new play…lively and literate.” -NY Times
“A quirky comedy about the evolution of relationships…a thoughtful study in love and extinction in a northeastern college town.” -Variety
“Madeleine George is on the cusp of joining the front rank of truly talented young American women playwrights.’ -talkinbroadway
Madeleine George’s new play is a deliciously smart and funny “academic sex comedy” about life in a small university town. Dean Wreen’s college is in dire financial straits, and a plan to close its on-campus natural history museum is sending unexpected shock waves in every direction—just as the Dean’s ex-girlfriend has come back into her life. This definitely complicates things with her much younger girlfriend, Andromeda. Neither budget cuts nor the shadows cast by seven about-to-be-homeless mammoths are any match for the sweet taste of romance in this hilarious and deeply moving play. Rated M for mature content and language, this production features simulated sex between prehistoric college students and contemporary lesbians. No mammoths were harmed in the making of this play.
Mature subject matter and language.
