"Wooten's southern family of the Martindales can sit on a family heirloom mantle along side some of the greats (Glass Menagerie's Wingfields, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof's Pollitts, Frankie Addams from The Member of the Wedding, or the Wingos from The Prince of Tides), yet still maintain a uniqueness of the author's voice that vividly allows us to 'know' these people." - Gregory Allen, Author, Playwright * * * * When Lex Martindale, a New York City writer, goes home to celebrate his birthday and say good-bye to his dying father, he struggles with whether or not to share with his eccentric Southern family news of his own life-threatening situation. * * * * As we travel through seventy years of the Martindales' rich and colorful history, unearthing forbidden loves, shattered hopes and tenacious dreams, we realize that this reunion is a volatile turning point in all of their lives. * * * * But as anger, resentments and jealousies erupt to the surface, it's their laughter and irreverent sense of humor that prevails allowing for a quiet healing in this bittersweet, moving portrait, of the all-American family. * * * *"A delicious surprise! Birthday Pie is a clever, smartly written tale that once again proves how great a storyteller Arthur Wooten actually is. A tasty treat from beginning to end." - Greg Archer, The Huffington Post * * * *
"Birthday Pie is one of the most original, relevant and touching stories I have ever read." - Debbie Allen
