*New York Times Best Theater of 2020*
"With no end to the pandemic in sight, theater-makers had to face the fact that repurposing existing stage works was not going to produce vibrant new ones for our changed world. Just in time, “Russian Troll Farm,” by Sarah Gancher, showed that digital-native productions could make the medium maximally expressive"
-- Jesse Green, The New York Times Best Theater of 2020
“Russian Troll Farm” paints a chilling portrait of chaotic nihilism that is simultaneously farcical and demoralizing for anybody who still believes in democracy.”
*Critic's Pick* "The content and form are also ideally matched in Jared Mezzocchi and Elizabeth Williamson’s beautifully realized production; this is digitally native theater, not just a play plopped into a Zoom box.”
--Jesse Green, The New York Times
"a fascinating exploration of craft: the addictive thrill of creation, the emotional punch of powerful storytelling, and the ease with which human minds are enthralled by narrative. "
