'The ferocious energy that courses through this short, sharp shock of a production might be characterized as, well, kind of beautiful... “Revolt” unfolds in a series of fragments that recall the form-bending virtuosity of Caryl Churchill... yet “Revolt” teems with the same anarchic fury that possessed Jimmy Porter and the same frustrated awareness that there are no easy fixes for an unsatisfactory social system... Ms. Birch’s work finds the theatrical exhilaration in civil disobedience.' New York Times
