"When I first read Insomnia by Patrick Gabridge I laughed out loud. When it was subsequently performed as part of Heartlande Theatre Company's annual marathon of short plays, the entire audience followed suit - in spades. When we included it in a festival of plays chosen from past marathons, it became clear that Insomnia had achieved cult status as an audience favorite. Any play that bills itself as hysterically funny or deeply human is usually a disappointment. Insomnia is the rarest of exceptions - a play to which one could apply an endless stream of such hyperbole and still not do justice to the audience's experience of it."
By Jan Radcliff - Theatre Co-Founder - Heartlande Theatre Company
