PRESS FOR WINKY
"Winky” just lays this existential dilemma out, with the full-bodied acting and multifaceted staging (by director Caitlin Sullivan) we’ve come to expect from the intrepid Satori folks."-Misha Berson, The Seattle Times

"The direction (by Caitlin Sullivan) and acting are strong, particularly Darnell as Yaniky and Standley as the smug self-help shyster... a rewarding (and often ruefully funny) experiment in blowing down old walls and building up new ones. Let the Satori Group be an example to the rest of us."- Brendan Kiley, The Stranger
