"Roadkill Confidential, a new work by Sheila Callaghan, is intriguing to watch... it's a sick sitcom, it's a thriller, it's a parody, it's a commentary on the art world, it's a -- and this one's borrowed from the script's title page -- 'noir-ish meditation on brutality.'"The New York Times
"This multi-media spectacle...ransacks familiar pop-cultural genre conventions to deliver a smart and stylish cautionary tale of an artist who gets caught up in the savagery of her own art."Variety
"Sheila Callaghan, like many playwrights, operates best when she's angry... dry her out with a nice, warming rage, and her work cackles... Callaghan parodies brilliantly..."Time Out New York

Roadkill Confidential Script
A possibly rogue g-man stalks a stalled-out artist with a suspicious affinity for accident victims. Traps are set, traps are sprung, and everyone gets caught. Roadkill Confidential tackles, with style, humor and high theatricality, mediated violence and the numbness it produces, and, whether in art or in global politics, the ends can justify the means.
