Norm Foster creates characters who are so believable that theatregoers see bits of themselves reflected on stage.
--Los Angeles Daily News
The measure of Foster's genius, his ability to suck us in with laughter then calmly turn the knife, gives the best of his plays a wildly beating heart.
--Hamilton Spectator
Norm Foster is our most-produced playwright for a reason: he's very, very funny
--Montreal Gazette
