Reviews for Sheathed (March 8 – 24, 2019), Macha Theatre Works, Seattle, WA

“…it’s a cleverly plotted script centered on two well drawn and powerful female characters portraying roles that women don’t normally take in most stories, as decisive tough people who are physically and mentally equal if not more so, than any male character. Ms Lee’s plotting is smart and original and she has a great gift for crafting crackling sharp dialogue for all her characters…”

— Michael Strangeways, Seattle Gay Scene: “Sheathed” Is Proof That Maggie Lee Is A Superstar Playwright

“Lee’s writing is tight, the show is efficient, and the characters well-drawn. But it’s not just that. Lee has a unique ability to visualize a whole separate world — which could be past or future — that is not our own but very much feels like it. And the particular world she walks us through in Sheathed has a lot of parallels to where our own people are now (nationally and globally) and may continue to languish in the future: struggling to heal battle scars from decades of neglect and division…Macha’s Sheathed  is a stunning production and the latest example of why Maggie Lee, one of the most prolific local playwrights, is also one of the best and most creative.”
