"[An] incisive and very funny new comedy... Call it comedy for the new Age of Anxiety." - SF Examiner

"Moore has successfully integrated comedy with topical issues...Moore's characters come alive as real people despite the absurdist situations and coincidences that bring the plot threads to a mindful conclusion. Collapse is a fine examination of the many ways that economic disaster can impact real people just trying to live their lives." - Associated Press

"The laughter comes so thick and fast, it's almost astonishing how few one-liners there are. Moore skillfully builds her comedy as much from character and evolving situations as she does from jarring juxtapositions of topic and tone...allowing the poignant truths beneath the humor to take root and slowly blossom." - San Francisco Gate
