"Just saw two hilarious Dan Guyton comedies, SPAT! and DON WANNABE, which were
produced in
DISJOINTED [LOVE] SHORTS at The Alchemical Theatre Laboratory in
NYC. They took me back to some gut wrenching laughter at the Last Frontier Fringe
[Festival] in June, courtesy of Dan's deliciously dark sense of humor... Paco got big laughs
in
SPAT! And the guy playing Don in DON WANNABE was very funny, he had a young
Orson Welles persona and delivery." (Jeff Stolzer, Last Frontier Theatre Conference, 2013)

"Double-billed on the show is playwright Daniel Guyton, rounding out the show with the
hilarious '
I’M NOT GAY!' and the well-timed 'SPAT!'" (Natasha Lewin, Tolucan Times,
2013)

"
SPAT! opens as a highly volatile, explosive argument between Mark and Wanda. Divided
between a few scenes and flashback moments, and nicely softened with the comedic Paco,
the play explores a couple’s inability to co-exist and the ways they find validation for their
self and most base needs." (Michael Weems, Next Stage Press, 2015)

"Saw the show last night... Your two pieces were last on the bill and the crowd loved them.
'
I'M NOT GAY!' seemed to really hit. And lots of laughs in 'SPAT!' especially with the
boyfriend. Good work!" (Ron Burch, Playwrights Binge, 2013)

"Dan Guyton's
SPAT! was the hit of the evening... I attended the evening of one acts at
Whitefire and your play
SPAT! was a big hit. I was the main laugher. All of the actors were
very good and well cast and it was great to have just several hard laughs... The main guy
had hair that looked slightly better than a toupee which helped in some strange way and the
actor playing Paco delivering the line "JES" just cracked up the whole house. I laughed
right off the bat when he said I hate you, I hate you more, you're a slut... I dunno, I like
that s**t, man." (Michael Erger, Playwrights Binge, 2013)
