“Lauren Hilger’s Morality Play is a dance lesson in duality, when duality is multiplied, of what was, what is, real and imagined. A disquieting reassuring look at how we see who we were, Hilger’s visions feel like past and future encouragement. An all-knowing theatre performance. I found myself unable to shake one of the opening lines, “I know how to live my life now.” Because by the end of the book, I feel I do too.” —Shauna Barbosa
