"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

"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
