CHRIS HYNES certified reviewer June 25, 2018

Man is Wolf is an alarmingly truthful piece that illuminates our animalistic patterns kept integral beneath our social and moral responsibility. It shows these patterns turning to sexual violence that finds the wall cracks in humanity's deteriorating institutions and leaps. As the audience, we watch two individuals struggle to fortify their own convictions against the other's attack in the confines of a motel room sealed by an unforgiving winter storm. The tension is thick and drunk. It holds you hostage in your own inner turmoil and if you think you have none, it will find it for you.... full review
CHARLES ZIARKO certified reviewer June 25, 2018
The oddly evocative title doesn't really prepare you for the two-character drama that plays out---but in this case that makes for Good Theatre! After 80 minutes it turns out to have been a revelation of the black heart behind the All-American facade of a teen champion. It's a Star Vehicle for two guys generations apart, fortunately cast with two Could-Be stars who don't need the mounting missing from this modest production. They command attention with their craft, and I found myself wondering how much rehearsal time they invested to bring this to its present perfect peak. Seemed somewhat long but I can't imagine cutting any of it!... full review

Wonderful show with deep character development and emotion. This is a true, classic play with no gimmicks like animation or music to try to make the audience feel something that's not there. This is just two actors at their finest. Every word rang true. A very powerful and moving experience.... full review

RUSSELL EATON certified reviewer June 15, 2018
Hard hitting drama is a tricky genre, but when done well it can be thrilling. Man Is Wolf achieves that level of impact. A fascinating play, incredibly acted with subtlety and intensity. Sometimes touching, sometimes disturbing, this is a fine piece of theater worth seeing. It is a drama that explores difficult subject matter and the unfolding of events is consistently surprising and unsettling.... full review

Wow. I really enjoyed this play. Phenomenal writing. Spot on casting. And the shocking surprise ending was super satisfying. Endge-of-the-seat tension, good laughs, and ripped from the headlines subject matter. This play is of the moment. Fantastic. 10/10 Hollywood Fringe Festival theater. This was a great experience across the board. The writing stands out as A+ storytelling. (Someone is going to adapt this into a film. It's prime material for a movie adaptation.) The characters are complex, the tension throughout the play builds to a point where the entire audience was literally all leaning forward in anticipation of the final twist. Audible gasps when the twist is revealed. It's shocking. George Hale and Landon Tavernier are ... full review

Man is Wolf was well directed. The actors did an amazing job. They were so committed. I loved it.... full review
ANONYMOUS certified reviewer June 10, 2018
Exceptional writing and directing with sustained edge of the seat tension between the two characters throughout. David Robinette is fearless in exploring the darker parts of the human psyche and male libido. With unexpected twists and turns, he sheds light on the layers of past abuse and violence that contribute to shaping our primal responses and ultimate moral compass. ... full review
