praise for IVORIES

"Ivories is a unique and intriguing tragicomedy-thriller hybrid, with a fantastic team that has clearly put so much love and care into the production." ★★★★★ Lost in Theatreland


"This show brings horror, chiller with some touches of humour, but most of all what a great theatre show that we loved." ★★★ MoreishTV

"A playwright to keep an eye on for SURE! Ivories has it all: tears, trauma, sexual tension, ghosts, laughs & the understanding that nothing (and no one) is ever as they appear to me. The cast is stunning. The script is stunning." ★★★ Hailey Green


"An absolutely amazing show for fans of horror and LGBT+ theatre. The masterful writing along with the actors' chemistry kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time." ★★★ Grace Laughton

"Horror fans know the real deal when we see it, and Riley Elton McCarthy's tightly wound exploration of haunting grief is a refreshing case in point." ★★★ The Scotsman


"Southern Bedfellows has the integrity and raw passion of a resistance movement." ★★★★★ CPHPost

"I let myself be sucked into a story about finding one's identity, deep friendship and choosing oneself first. This experience made such an impression on me that I dreamed about gender identity all night." ★★★★★ POVInternational

praise for RABBIT

"rabbit is a horror play with plenty of room for individual interpretation. If the actors point prop “guns” (actually cap guns/rifles) in your direction or the chase after prey comes tumbling into the space beside you, you will jump. The young theater artists of LakehouseRanchDotPNG are attracting audiences hungry for shows that aren’t the same old same old.  Some of which, like “rabbit,” may just startle the bejesus out of them." ArtBurst Miami

"LakeHouseRanchDotPNG THRILLS with "rabbit". It is scary, chilling and eerily familiar these days  to think of a world in which books are forbidden, journaling is “not really allowed,” and one person’s words, wishes, and commands are “law.” Yet that is the world of “rabbit,” a new horror play by Riley Elton McCarthy in a solid production by LakeHouseRanchDotPNG at its intimate black box theater space in Kendall."  MiamiArtZine
