Her earlier play Vision Disturbance was named one of the Best Plays of 2010 by Time Out New York, described as “brilliant…and unforgettable” by The New Yorker, and “a showcase for Ms. Masciotti’s gift for writing” by The New York Times. The scripts for both Vision Disturbance and Adult have been selected for inclusion in the permanent archives of The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts.
