THE PROPOSAL

"Emma Gibson directs the piece with gusto and grace" (Broad Street Review)

"Director Emma Gibson has a firm grip on the material, seeing through the lens of comments of social media today and how deeply words can cut." (Delco Culture Vultures)

"We think Gibson’s touch was giving the cast the energy and the freedom to let loose onstage. To feel and express anger, grief, and crippling longing in a safe space. A lot of this might stem from Gibson’s acting and playwriting background. If a director knows what fuels the engine of a play, what makes the motor of a performer purr like a kitten, then they know when to goose the throttle or tap the brakes. Many times we knew that Gibson was trusting these trained actors to do what they were born to do with words that were finely crafted. Then other times we knew that she was the one giving them the final gentle touch to steer them headlong into the scene with a passion and emotion that had us the edge on our seats.(Young-Howze Theatre Journal)

"Director Emma Gibson brings out the darkest edges of Enda Walsh's powerful script. Gibson's supremely talented cast walks that edge with intelligence and a good dose of dark humor to go along with it. " Talking Broadway
