    A commanding voice, a universal one, using scientific metaphors while addressing inequality and oppression during our pandemic time that really makes you think and agree with her. Hopeful, optimistic - lovely writing.

    Eppich-Harris digs into the fertile soil of these challenging times, and encourages a conversation at once cellular, and celestial. There's something about time playing tricks, how days eek by and whole years just disappear in the wash of emotional labor. Written in 2020, I would be so curious where this world-weary character has been since then. My hunch is that her clear voice would only sing louder.

    The voice in Eppich-Harris's monologue is so specific, which is lovely. There's hope, but there's also a feeling an overriding feeling of befuddlement, that the character is thrown off by humans as an entire species. This would be a nice challenge for a female actor, and a fine audition piece or standalone performance.
