John D. Schneider interviewed Against the Grain director Edward Morgan for this week's Shepherd Express Performing Arts Weekly: "Here’s a guy who comes home damaged from the war, teaches himself and just starts creating. He’s researching animals, photographing them, constantly carving out in his yard; the neighborhood kids are coming around and he’s teaching them and telling them stories. His vision expands again and he makes an amazing new life for himself as a 19th-century showman touring Wisconsin with a traveling tent. He drags his whole family into it. Through it all, he stays true to his artistic sense."
