“Svich’s RED BIKE is a luminous piece that tackles our common dreams and dangers with magic, poetry, and a sense of both possibility and loneliness. A beautiful work!” — Cristina Garcia (Novelist, Dreaming in Cuban)
“Svich’s RED BIKE is a ride into Trump’s America and the soul of a nation.” — Stephen Wrentmore (Artistic Producer, Lighthouse Poole Centre for the Arts)
“What I admire about Svich’s powerful work is the continual theatrical risks she takes, the poetic layering of too often repressed voices, and the kick in the ass at realism. RED BIKE is a beautiful ride.” — Naomi Wallace (Playwright)
