What the critics have said about Ms. Thornburg's Leap of Faith
"Leap of Faith is the kind of play that breeds theatre addicts … one of the rare, rare theatre productions where the form and content are in complete symbiosis, and the result—magic."—Evelyn C. White, Seattle Gay News
"Hilariously funny, serious, candid, strong."—Phyllis Lyon and Del Martin
"This one is a winner—an ironic, good-humored, funny piece. Three stars."—Nancy Scott, San Francisco Examiner
"Leap of Faith is a very funny and touching play about lesbians which should have universal appeal to any audience who is interested in good theatre … a blend of Neil Simon and Samuel Beckett."—A. J. Esta, Drama-Logue, Los Angeles
"Thornburg has created two thinking, loving women with tremendous zest…. She has a wonderful flair for dialogue and delving beyond the merely theatrical or cliché, and she has written a play that should not only appeal to the gay audience, female and/or male, but to heterosexuals as well."—D. McLean, The Advocate, San Francisco
"None of my books will ever sell. They all have happy endings."
Brenda Laurel and Linda Thornburg as Emmy and Louise
