PRAISE FOR MARNI'S RECENT TURN IN PINTER'S THE LOVER
"Actors Nigel Reed and Marni Penning are expert at the role-playing of a twisted marriage... Penning runs the gamut as the wife
who thrives on the game and grows desperate to maintain the kinky status quo." -- Nelson Pressley, The Washington Post
"One impressive show at Rep Stage... Marni Penning, who plays Sarah, vaguely resembles Tracey Ullman and has a similar gift
for transforming herself from a mousy housewife into a terrorizing vamp--for either dramatic or comic purposes. When Sarah
shifts from squealing, hand-fluttering victim to slit-eyed, serpent-hissing seductress, the sudden change not only makes us wary
of her intentions but also makes us laugh at her pretenses." -Geoffrey Himes, Baltimore City Paper
"Nigel Reed and Marni Penning, as Richard and Sarah, deal brilliantly with the play's heavy emotional dialogue and action."
-- William Hyder, The Baltimore Sun

"If smarter, more emotionally true work has been done on a stage
in D.C. this season, I've not seen it." --Bob Mondello, CityPaper
