"Len Jenkin not only has a vivid imagination, but he also has an artist's command of his craft." -New York Times "Len Jenkin has an unusual talent for reaching into shadowy places in the human psyche and coming up with evocative images." -Journal American (Seattle) "Jenkin's plays have plenty of plot and delicious language, but the transience of experience is the main theme that runs through Jenkin's work. He manipulates theatrical illusions with a playful manner that recalls Jorge Luis Borges, to disguise meditations on mortality." -Village Voice (New York) "Jenkin explores many of the raw nerve ends in our society; the deep need to believe an absolute, while at the same time reveling in the gratification of the present; the difference between titillation and satisfaction; the bizarre nature of reality; and the real nature of the bizarre." -Times, Seattle Review Len Jenkin not only has a vivid imagination, but he also has an artist's command of his craft. --New York Times Len Jenkin has an unusual talent for reaching into shadowy places in the human psyche and coming up with evocative images. --Journal American (Seattle) Jenkin's plays have plenty of plot and delicious language, but the transience of experience is the main theme that runs through Jenkin's work.
