Praise for Disordered [thy name is teenager]
"I could probably write a novel on how much Disordered [thy name is teenager] blew my mind. I kept wanting to jump up off my seat and yell, 'YES! EXACTLY! THANK YOU!' I was so excited someone figured out how to say exactly what I feel, and have tried to express about myself and how I view my 'disorder' on countless occasions. Thank you so much!" ~ Hannah Graves, teen audience member
"A top rate production that is an outstanding depiction of real teens. If there exists a play that could define teenagers in America today, it would be the blank slate theatre production of Disordered [thy name is teenager]". ~ Rachel Reiva, Twin Cities Daily Planet
"After several viewings of Disordered [thy name is teenager], I am still amazed with the accurate depiction of diagnosed, 'at-risk' teens.
