More Reviews For The Little One

Aaron Riccio at That Sounds Cool and Teresa Jusino at Pink Raygun have posted some very thoughtful write-ups of The Little One.

They both definitely have some (very fair and valid) critiques to make, but also write many positive things, such as:

"The Little One—a modern vampire story—most often finds Comtois at his inventive best. Rather than dwell on the soppy forbidden romances of Twilight, the campy politics of True Blood, the supernatural action of Underworld, or the classic Gothic horror of Dracula, Comtois has crafted a creative character piece that embraces the otherness of vampires and the sense of isolation that immortality can bring (like a bloodier Tuck Everlasting)."
-Aaron Riccio, That Sounds Cool

"The Little One has a lot to offer lovers of vampire stories and fans of fantasy and horror. It brings a lot to the table in terms of lore. Ms. Byers’ performance is also one that shouldn’t be missed. The Little One is great Geek Theater."
-Teresa Jusino, Pink Raygun

I hope to see you at the show, either this weekend or the remaining two in the run. In the meantime, keep your stick in your pants, and don't take any wooden boners.

Wondering if he got those sayings wrong,

James "Never One To Dwell" Comtois

Is "isolation" a running theme in your work?
If so, does that speak to the necessary nature of sitting alone with your thoughts to write anything or does that speak to something you are trying to work out in your own psyche?

Interesting question. Yeah, I think it's safe to say the theme of isolation pops up a lot in my plays in different shapes and forms. As for why, I'm not 100% sure. Most likely a little bit of Column A and a little bit of Column B. Hey, the latter could be a big reason on why I got into writing.
