    Oooooh this play is great. It sucks you in and has you wondering what is real and what is in Celine's mind. So, so well done! Gabriella Bonamici packs a whole lot into only 48 pages and keeps you guessing. I loved it!

    "Night Shift" by Gabriella Bonamici is a deeply emotional, appropriately creepy play about a woman fighting for custody of her daughter. With an almost Twilight-Zone feel that is both disorienting and exciting, this play is a must-read for any horror/thriller/mystery fan. An incredible work that would be amazing to see fully staged.

    It’s hard for a play to give me goosebumps. Have a physical reaction to words I’m simply reading while sitting alone in my apartment. But this story did. Twice actually. As I followed Celine fighting for the custody of her daughter, I rooted for her, but was overwhelmed by questions and slathered in uncertainty. I was forced to doubt what is real or what is a mere glimpse from the corner of my eye. Who is this visitor? What happened to Alex? The more I questioned the more I was absorbed in this play. The goosebumps followed suit.
