Editorial Reviews

“Murphy’s work is refreshingly unpredictable...She is a keen observer, a shrewd and independent-minded analyst. And a terrific writer, with un-showy, economical dialogue, and tightly structured action. . .Building tension, never sensationalizing, or exploiting the suffering of the victim she shows—a bright student sunk into drug-addiction and lured to the farm by promises of new pharmaceuticals—Murphy gives depth to each character.” —Timothy Ramsden, ReviewsGate, London UK


“Pig Girl succeeds not only in giving voice to the dead but by vocalising an important social injustice of its own: a missing prostitute is distinctly different from a missing person.” —Alecia Marshall, British Theatre Guide


“ . . . a deeply feminist, profoundly political work.”—Alex Ramon, Public Reviews, London UK


“It’s a powerful and provocative story, told with beauty and utter fearlessness.” —Paula Simmons, The Edmonton Journal
