"Tira Palmquist has captured the disheartening struggle of one abused young girl with harsh and no-holds-barred realism."
"Under director Amy K. Harmon, Rogers and Nicksay slip headfirst into the troubled skins of these tragically adrift adolescents ... Venable is exceptional, as well, as Jordan's slick but uber-creepy predator guardian. Jaquita Ta'le and Ben Fuller (alternating with Faith Imafidon and Brad Harris) do a knockout job playing all the other characters. "
- Travis Holder, ArtsInLA.com
"...striking direction and scenic design."
"Kacie Rogers is so wonderfully lived-in as Jordan that it can be easy to overlook how much heavy lifting she's doing. And Lily Nicksay as Cal gives an endlessly endearing, heartbreaking performance as a character who'd punch me in the nose for calling him 'endlessly endearing.'"
- Joshua Kahn, DiscoverHollywood.com
And Then They Fell tells the story of Jordan and Cal, two teenagers who find themselves without stable homes. Jordan has fled a home wrecked by alcoholism and sexual abuse while still trying to graduate high school with honors. Cal is a young transgender boy set adrift by his family’s intolerance and the failure of adults and institutions to help him through a severely vulnerable period of his young life. These two teens find each other, and for a while, they give each other the hope and security they so desperately need.
