“Fielding Edlow’s GIRAFFE contains some of the funniest dialogue I’ve heard in the theatre. Her characters are sharply drawn, and her depiction of the terminally privileged attending a class reunion in Lower Manhattan feels terrifyingly accurate. GIRAFFE is a pandemic of laughter.” – Lee Blessing (Tony nominee for A Walk in the Woods)
“Edlow’s GIRAFFE keeps you laughing from start to finish, reflecting on the “where are they now” of your own high school story, a trip down memory lane you might be afraid to take. As a playwright, Fielding is a topnotch collaborator, open and hilarious.” – Stefanie Black (Artistic Director of IAMA Theatre)
“From start to finish, Giraffe had me laughing. Gasping. Then feeling so much for these characters who aren’t just hilarious–but also fumbling and stumbling toward truths about each other and themselves. It makes for a really really great night. Which we need right now.” – Melanie Marnich (EP OA & The Affair)
“With GIRAFFE Fielding Edlow uses her singular voice to ruthlessly skewer and undress the upper-class. Edlow’s rapid-fire dissections of the characters’ flaws and her ability to wallop the reader with emotional truths, creates a play that keeps you thinking – and laughing – long after the curtain has fallen.” -Andrea Berloff (Oscar-nominated screenwriter for Straight Outta Compton)
