"Chiori Miyagawa adamantly refuses to provide those signposts that more comforting dramatists leave to reassure audiences. The force of her work lies in its jarring historical and cultural discontinuities, its mixture of brutality and beauty, its disorienting verbal and visual impact." (Martin Harries, New York University)"

I have helped produce two readings of Comet Hunter in Madison, Wisconsin, and have witnessed its didactic power as audience members come away talking about the (real, historical) characters, the lives they led, and the science they produced, which was truly at the root of our modern conception of the universe. As a "science" play, Comet Hunter is right up there with Michael Frayn's Copenhagen, or Richard Goodwin's underappreciated Hinge of the World. The essence of modern science is often caricatured as a series of "aha!" moments, but these great plays about science and scientists put the people at the center of the science, where they must be. Such plays explore those fly-on-the-wall moments in which great human intellects seek, grapple with, and answer profound questions about the nature of the world; and all of them lead us, as the audience (or readers) to marvel at the fact that human nature drove them, as it must drive us, to constantly explore and understand our world--the only one we have--as an integral part of making ourselves better. --Jim Lattis
