    A really fun play. The dialogue is snappy and clever, with likable and distinct characters to enhance it. Thompson's writing had me laughing (while also on the edge of my seat) the entire read!

    Quite fun piece. Two likeable characters (yes, one is a serial killer, I'm aware of that) unexpectedly having a very different evening than either had expected. Well-paced, comedic turnabouts and lots of fun for two exuberant actors!
