    A powerful and moving story about friendship and mental health that will stay with you. Well done.

    A well-crafted four hander navigating the landmines of mental illness and friendship - the pacts we make before the world ruins us, the mistakes that follow when the world does, and the promise of healing once we build our own worlds. Dynamic time-lapsing story, based on true accounts.

    Mr. White's play FIXED is a dramatic departure from his previous work--it is far more intentional than his family comedy BLOOD, or his mysterious satire SLIPPERY AS SIN. FIXED accomplishes two things expertly--it is entertaining and engaging in the way only Mr. White can be, but it is also informative and stimulating. The character of Ronnie, who suffers from schitzoaffective disorder, is gorgeously realized--terrifying, pitiful, strong, romantic--she is probably one of the most fully realized characters in Mr. White's impressive canon.
