    A wonderful two-hander about two distinct individuals in a truly unique situation. Sara Jean Accuardi has a superb ability to create modern true-to life dialogue. The banter jumps off the page. I'm a fan! Brava!

    A fantastic play that has such authenticity to it, the facade of being able to keep the world safe and our feeling of powerlessness the officers face as they leave their families at home. Great work!

    This play warms and breaks your heart. Complicated, emotional, develops great characters and covers a lot of ground in 10 minutes.
