A farce-comedy about the demise of the Duncan family, and, by extension, the species. Dysfunction takes on new meaning with the Duncan Family. We laugh throughout, as we watch the family disintegrate, and finally realize the seeds of this dysfunction lie within us all.
"PTERODACTYLS struck me as the flip-side of The Skin of Our Teeth Thornton Wilder's antic celebration of mankind's ability to muddle through." 'NY Times.
"There are times, not all that many, admittedly, when a critic wishes he had never used the word 'brilliant' before, so he could offer it fresh minded and glittering to something new. And different" NY Post.
"Clever is the word for PTERODACTYLS. Clever, sharp, witty, it's a play that takes aim at the main-streamed, moneyed, conventional American family and buries it under one satiric jibe after another." 'TheaterWeek.
