    What a beautiful gem of a sweet play (no pun intended)! This is what a ten-minute play does as its best: calls into question the nature of existence in a way that causes us to inadvertently smile. Thank you!

    This is beautiful. It's complicated while simple, sad and funny, and a just a very delightful read in general. I'd love to see what a production team would come up with for this dynamic duo. I could also see this being a lot of fun in a festival or anthology.

    This is just a beautifully realized play of life, death, purpose and our place in the universe with a cast of two twinkling stars. The play covers a lot of ground in ten-minutes and is written with such care and appreciation of our universe. Everyone belongs. Even a midsize star. Every life is important - even midsized ones.
