Opplaud New York 

“Director Don Stephenson squeezes as much energy out of these three talented actors as the space can hold”

“…Vincent Delaney’s message…is one that both liberals and conservatives desperately need to hear, in an era when fake news and social media are polarizing everyone to an extreme we haven’t seen since the Civil War.”

“In a century where American citizens are bitterly divided over politics and uncharacteristically laser-focused on the upcoming midterms, The War Party…couldn’t be more timely.”

“The War Party is an exciting play with a strong voice”

“The truth of its comedy is liberating,…offers audiences a raucous and fun dramatization of the often ridiculous nature of the American political system at a time when most of us are exhausted by the spin.”

“Delaney’s characters grapple with difficulties faced by female politicians committed to important issues and the tabloid-centric public more concerned with their private lives, their hair, and the cost of their wardrobes.”

[The War Party offers] “a welcome political romp at a time when many of us doubt the sanity of our real political environment.”

“Politics that strikes right chord”

“Vincent Delaney’s brand new play THE WAR PARTY couldn’t come at a better time in political history.  With Sarah Palin “gone rogue” on John McCain and Hillary Clinton forced to smile pretty for the cameras while stumping for her former opponent, this is one loaded year for women in politics.”

“Heaven knows there’s been enough political talk for the past 18 months to put anyone off it for a long while”…this play is served “up as a palate cleanser before Tuesdays’ big entree.”

“The dialogue— laced with political punditry and enough references to past election battles to keep political junkies interested—feels reminiscent of David Mamet in its sharp, terse, tense dialogue, … “

“Like me, Delaney feels skeptical about Democrats and Republicans alike, and his script vents on them equally. Young Jessie hates the socially conservative everything-phobic Republicans but can’t stand the Democrats either (at one point she calls them “pure evil”). The play’s sole poignant moment rightly points out that the country won’t survive such divisive hatred. “
