    Powerful depiction of the dangers of misguided perception. One person's average sexual encounter is another's forced assault. What I love most about this piece is that it will undoubtedly make the audience think, wonder, evaluate any and all encounters with the opposite sex. Any piece which forces an audience to think, to re-evaluate past experiences is a success in my mind. This piece is not easy to watch (and I imagine it won't be easy to perform), but it is this difficulty which produces its BRILLIANCE! Thought-provoking and powerful! What more can we ask of a play?

    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.
