'With vivid and poetic language, striking imagery and an arresting soundscape, The Waves highlights the experience of motherhood and the mother/child relationship in ways that are unique, playful and relatable while also delving into the underrepresented territory of postpartum depression with rawness and beauty. Laura Quigley is a thoughtful writer and magnetic performer who is open to discovery in the creative process. Her vocal and physical range is unlike anyone I have witnessed in years.' - Laura Nanni, Summerworks Artistic Director
