    An eerie and surprising psychological thriller. The misdirection is superb and the characters well-crafted and compelling. I was intrigued and then horrified in the most gripping way.

    Hannah Lee DeFrates is an exceptional mystery/twist writer. This play further confirms the previous statement. The brilliance of Hannah's writing is that everyone knows the twist, you feel the twist, there's a sense of what the twist is, but if you don't read it until the end you'll miss the actual twist. Hannah's creativity knows no bounds and that's part of the art of Hannah's writing. I have an incredible amount of respect for how she approaches her work and how she pushes her characters to the brink of potential disaster. This work needs to be produced.

    What a creepy and foreboding play! Hannah Lee DeFrates sets the perfect tone with this thriller, playing the tension perfectly throughout so that even when you think you know the answer to the mystery, the climax still comes as a shock.
    This would be a great addition to an evening of horror plays. Bravo!
