The Night Sky (a ten minute play)

    A lovely play that takes our humanity and expands it to a cosmic scale. It manages that wonderful balancing act of being fun and light while also touching beautifully upon deeper subjects of loss, love, connection, reasons for being, the need for validation, and moments of grace. This piece would shine in a night of short plays!

    A fantastic metaphor for wondering about our place in it all. Do we have purpose or are we insignificant in the great scheme of things? Marvelously done.

    Eugenie Carabatsos takes complicated, universal concepts like loss, grief, love, connection, despair, and hope, and rather than simplifying those ideas, she makes the context as majestic, universal, confusing, and mysterious as those experiences. The story is intimate and lovely, with two characters that are both recognizable and relatable. Carabatsos’ writing is playful and real, and anyone who has lost a loved one, been in love, or tried to find connection with another person or group of people will discover a piece of themselves in Stella and Stan.
