" What a weird, twisted, creepy, perfect little gem of a show. I can always count on Creative License to find work that makes me think, and usually work that’s new to me, both things I love. "
" Thank you to Creative License for, yet again, bringing new work to the area; it’s not often we see something this interesting and innovative, especially not with acting and direction this strong."
-Amy Durant, The Alt
" Creative License has assembled an excellent cast and “Mine” is well performed under director Casey Polomaine’s more than capable hand. "
" For those who like their theater a bit on the scary side, go and make “Mine” yours."
-Matthew Moross, The Daily Gazette

As a first-time mother about to have a home birth, Mari is certain of one thing: she can't wait to hold her baby. The next morning, shes certain of something else: the baby in her arms is not her baby. A contemporary thriller with age-old roots, MINE explores an unseen world where doubt and certainty blur and madness vies with reality.
