the brooklyn cycle (mINI-web sERIES)
"The duo's absurd, self-aware comedy is a breath of fresh air and while the series is certainly strange, something about the complete lack of regard for a strict formula makes it all the more enjoyable." - Jade Budowski, Decider.com

Very Bad Words
the new york international fringe festival
"American middle education is pilloried in Jacob Presson's 'Very Bad Words,' a bristling portrait of vanity, ambition and prejudice... his obscenity-infused script brims with adolescent authenticity."
- Andy Webster, The New York Times
"A thoughtful, exploratory, funny, horrifying look at a serious problem in our society... Presson has brilliantly laid out the case for necessary reform by telling a story about perpetrators rather than the victim... Get thee now to a provocative and necessary production."
- Michael D. Jackson, The Examiner
"Bold... A success."
- Taylor Shann, NYTheatre.com
"These kids may feel they are gifted but it is the author Jacob Presson who really is gifted."
