The New Yorker wrote a very nice review of Bekah Brunstetter's The Oregon Trail in their "Goings On About Town" section for their upcoming edition:
Goings On About Town: THE OREGON TRAIL
by Elisabeth Vincentelli
Over the past ten years or so, Bekah Brunstetter has established herself as a sympathetic, keen-eyed chronicler of a flailing American middle class, stuck in tough jobs and straining to make sense of life. Here she turns her attention to Jane (Liba Vaynberg), whom we first meet as a geeky 1997 middle-schooler determined to finish the computer game The Oregon Trail, in which a pioneer family heads west in a wagon. The play then fast-forwards to Jane at thirty, overeducated, underemployed, and mired in depression. Swiftly directed by Geordie Broadwater, the show toggles between our world and the frontier, contrasting the aimless modern Jane with her 1848 avatar (Emily Louise Perkins), who doesn’t have the luxury of wallowing on a couch. Brunstetter clearly has affection for her characters, watching them struggle to grow up against very different odds.
