Synopsis: Adam Rapp's The Metal Children is a timely drama about a New York writer (Billy Crudup), and his explosive encounter with a small American town that he travels to in order to defend one of his young adult novels, which has been banned by the local school board. The controversy ignites heated emotions over religious beliefs and censorship.

NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:

"Who says the novel is doornail-dead, irrelevant, a moribund art form incapable of holding the attention of the chronically distracted in the digital age?"

NY POST REVIEW:

"Playwright Adam Rapp has crammed a lot into his latest work, "The Metal Children." And it's a lot of big themes: the creative process, suicide, teenage sexuality, censorship. Not enough? Rapp throws in abortion and religion, as well. "

THEATERMANIA REVIEW:

"Fans of filmmaker David Lynch might take particular interest in Adam Rapp's The Metal Children, now receiving its world premiere at the Vineyard Theatre, under Rapp's assured direction. This engrossing new play has a similar feel to Lynch's landmark television drama, Twin Peaks, with eccentric characters, unexplained mystical phenomena, hidden secrets, and a surreal atmosphere that suffuses the entire work. "

CURTAIN UP REVIEW:

"It's, as Edward Albee often answers such questions, about two hours long — long enough for us to meet a novelist in his mid-thirties named Tobin Falmouth. His latest book is overdue and his wife, also a writer, has left him for her younger, thinner editor. He's stuck in the genre known as young adult fiction which means a sparsity of literary acclaim and an income that's not big enough to support his drug habit. "

BACKSTAGE REVIEW:

"There is a lot to admire in Adam Rapp's "The Metal Children" now at the Vineyard Theatre: a powerful culture-war issue, meaty performances from a cast full of Off-Broadway veterans, and strong direction from the author. But Rapp weighs down his script with too much matter, and the foundation cracks. The play starts out with a gripping premise. Down-on-his-luck writer Tobin Falmouth visits a small town in the American heartland where his young-adult novel about vanishing pregnant teenagers has been banned by the local school board. This actually happened to Rapp when his book "The Buffalo Tree" was deemed off-limits by a Pennsylvania high school. The basic idea offers a plethora of possibilities to explore: censorship, the role of the artist as teller of uncomfortable truths, adolescent angst, abortion, elitist author versus religious fundamentalists—you could go on and on."
