    The journey of "Screen Play" is masterfully crafted, with each moment building momentum right up to the end. The scenario is real and relatable, and I imagine audience members - male and female alike - asking themselves many of the same questions they encounter through what begins as a simple conversation between HE and SHE. This play will stay with me for a long time.

    This is a very necessary play. Hansen captures a lot of the current conversations we've seen in the media lately where people like to pretend consent is a murky situation (when in reality it's not). This gripping play gets right to the center of the argument and pulls no punches. I also love the back and forth between this husband and wife and what this conversation reveals about each of them.

    EXCELLENT work - this play doesn't mess around. Nothing extra here. Only what's necessary to tell this particular story happening all over the country for the past year or so. I'm so glad Hansen is writing this because if I write this, I'm labelled for it. And I'm so grateful this play exists! I love how HE (the character) doesn't get it at first (because he didn't get it back then either, never even wondered about it), and I grin ear to ear at the end of this play for the hope it gives.
