    Wow, so powerful and harrowing and tragic. Very hard to stop thinking about.

    Truly a chilling monologue basked in warmth and sweetness. Partain gives you Anna in all her teenage angst, her hopes and her so 16-year-old crush. You know her. You want to protect her. And that’s the point: we should be protecting all of them.

    Absolutely heartwrenching. Partain masterfully construct a relatable story that leads to a moment that has been often discussed but not taken in. This play makes you take in the pain of the experience by making you know what's lost.
