    There's a wonderful, deadpan matter-of-factness that can only be found between two people who know each other this well. Susan and Henry are that rare combination of characters we recognize both as people we might be and people we want to know.

    This is partially because Eppich-Harris has given them a rich background, especially Susan. When you've experienced what she's been through, or shared in it as Henry has, not a lot phases you, but you still feel things deeply. The play elegantly captures the pragmatism found amid the chaos of family dysfunction.

    I hope they make their window.

    Hilarious, tender, accurate. How can two parents-to-be manage to get through the unknown? Like everyone else...with fingers crossed. And yeah, a funeral's a great place to make whoopie.

    I loved the timing of this interaction! So inappropriately appropriate, really. The circle of life has never been so well shown than in this funny, dark comedy by Marcia Eppich-Harris. The characters come across as completely real here. I'd be willing to wager this sort of thing has happened before and probably more times than you'd think. I hope so. It appeals to my sense of the absurd...

    Ok so the tagline for this piece IMMEDIATELY drew my eye and it definitely delivers! Just as when you think its going to be a humour filled piece about the strange places couples have sex, it becomes so much more than that! Marcia expertly presents the complexity of relationships between husbands and wives, children and parents as well as families in general, coupled with life changing decisions that come with having kids. Its a beautiful example of human nature, behaviour and emotion. A powerful piece of drama that could make a great performance for two actors.

    This is a lovely, brilliantly subtle dark two hander by Marcia. Sue comes home from a family funeral with a new purpose, what ensues is a perfectly believable conversation of family old and new. My favourite line: Family drama ends at the State line - if only!

    Eppich-Harris employs a clever "ticking clock" technique in this wonderful 10-minute two-hander that explores family, life, death and re-generation. A real, honest slice-of-life play, and a perfect choice for any short play festival!
