"Michael Selkirk, brilliant as the wayward employee."

"Also impressive is Bodine's own work as playwright, I, Carpenter, the final and most powerful piece of the evening. The play details the struggle between a construction foreman and his fired employee. It's a modest but gripping piece, and treats the lives of working-class Americans with a truthfulness that is all too lacking in contemporary theatre. The play is also acted with startling honesty by Bodine, just as comfortable playing a blue collar New Yorker as a Russian aristocrat, and Michael Selkirk, brilliant as the wayward employee."
