Two reviews for ‘The Sandstorm’

My 10-minute play THE SANDSTORM has garnered two nice reviews on the New Play Exchange, one from Ohio playwright John Busser and the other from New York playwright Scott Sickles:

“Short, sad and oh so relevant. I was moved by the simplicity of the narrative and the characters, in just a few pages, had me concerned about their fate. Not a showy play at all, it is quiet but powerful.”
— John Busser

“O, how I love a good apocalypse! This one’s just getting started, but the play also has other things I love: smart people, bureaucracy, science and culture! And best of all, the characters have dimension! An investigation is in progress but it leads to unexpected admissions and even impactful lessons learned. As they face the certainty of a rather grave future, Yancey again instills his play with a bright hope in the deep darkness. Even in that darkness, this effervescent piece did my heart an otherworld of good!”
— Scott Sickles

Review for “The Math Lesson’

My 10-minute play THE MATH LESSON got a nice review from New York playwright Scott Sickles on the New Play Exchange:

“An elegant and concise sci-fi drama illustrating what’s at the root of everything wrong in the world, namely institutionalized ignorance. Yancey shows us a savvily-defiant teacher called to task over a subversive math problem. The power struggle is palpable and infuriating. Meanwhile, two normal girls simply observe the changes in the world around them, unaware that their planet is in a show but certain freefall. The play infuses doom with hope, and pays tribute to the beauty of their world and ours. Much like the math teacher, THE MATH LESSON is a sublime protest. A genuinely important short play!”
