"Brilliant and searing! A tour de force of powerhouse performances. A fine ensemble of talented actors. The emotional depth of its characters, its strong relatability, and its triumphantly hopeful musings make Fences a deeply moving wellspring of human experience that we can all identify with and deeply embrace."

- DC Metro Theater Arts

"Fascinating! With local heroes like Craig Wallace and Erika Rose as the headliners, it's not to be missed."

- Broadway World

"Powerful! Excellent cast!"

- MD Theatre Guide

"A powerful telling! The beauty and truth of Wilson’s words, the bold acting choices of the performers, and the strong design elements make for Ford’s 'Fences' to be a worthy trip for theatre lovers and novices alike."

- The Afro-American

"Deeply moving and thought-provoking piece! Ford’s production of this classic piece … is both powerful and passionate, pulling in knock-out performances from the entire cast. Craig Wallace, a veteran of the D.C. theater scene and staple at Ford’s, commands the stage in a heavy-hitting performance as he tackles another complex father figure."

- The Free Lance-Star
