    Discord Dished Up at Every Meal

    Charles Isherwood

    January 12, 2011: Every unhappy family may be unhappy in its own way, as Tolstoy wrote, but not all of those ways are necessarily interesting. This truth is borne out by the worthy but wearying new play “Blood From a Stone” by Tommy Nohilly, a New Group production that opened Wednesday night at the Acorn Theater.

    Blood From a Stone

    Joe Dziemianowicz

    January 13, 2011: In his debut play, "Blood From a Stone," Tommy Nohilly paints his portrait of the American family. It's not a pretty picture. It's not subtle either.

    NY Review: 'Blood From a Stone'

    David Sheward

    January 12, 2011: "I don't have time for this crap," moans Margaret, the mother of one of the most dysfunctional families in recent theatrical memory. She's referring to just one of the endless crises that erupt in "Blood From a Stone," Tommy Nohilly's debut play, being given a thoroughly professional production by the New Group, featuring a hard-working, starry cast.

    Blood From a Stone

    Elyse Sommer

    January 12, 2011: The roof leaks. The kitchen floor is patched with mismatched tiles, the dining table is piled high with personal papers. Though there are some signs of normal family life —- children's drawings tacked to the refrigerator, cat scratching post , framed family pictures lining the wall leading upstairs — the general aura of messiness quickly proves to be a visual metaphor for the lives of far from quiet discontent we witness in Tommy Nohilly's debut play, Blood From a Stone, that just opened at The New Group's home on Theatre Row.

    'Blood From a Stone' Boasts Towering Performances and Blue-Collar Toxicity

    David Rooney

    January 12, 2011: Family is a life sentence in Tommy Nohilly's caustic study, shot through with darkly funny observations and exposed nerves, authenticated in the New Group's production by a tremendous cast working at the top of their game.
