What people are saying...


We are honored and humbled by the comments people have made about "The Turkey Men." Here are a few.



"...The Turkey Men fantastic in every sense of the word. When I first heard the premise I thought 'how is that going to work?' and last night learned the answer- beautifully. I love stories that connect the past and present and Douglas has written a unique one that made the audience cheer."
Johnrick Hole, Playwright



“It’s a ghost story but without ghosts, it’s a sci-fi story but not lost in the weeds. It is a remarkable story of the very human desire to connect, communicate, and ultimately to be seen for who you really are. Very relevant today...It’s such a First World privilege to have your mind captured so... The critics aren’t wrong - and neither am I! Go see this production, then thank me. It is wonderful! Reflective, relevant, and charming!”

Jim Bruner, PAST Foundation
