    A fascinating look at mental health and love as one makes a choice as to whether it's worth it. Well done.

    Every time you think you know where this play is going, and where it will end up, it shifts in surprising ways, staying true to the characters and the darkness they are grappling with.

    This is a charming piece that starts out a somewhat quirky rom-com but ends up something so deep and true and wonderful - it's like the discovery of a prism refracturing light - that so much could come from such a seemingly simple set-up - I am fascinated and thrilled by it!
