    Wow! What a beautiful and poignant look at youth, loss, love, and remembering. MARCIA EPPICH-HARRIS shares touching memories with such natural dialogue between a loving husband and wife. Audiences will truly connect with what happens when grief never goes away, and a first love tip toes gently into a more mature love of marriage.

    An elegant encapsulation of the enduring power and pull of grief, while also a celebration of compassionate and present love. The final draft of the letter never sent is a powerful metaphor for potential healing. This play is subtly moving and affecting.

    Simplicity is one of the hardest things to pull off when writing. Marcia Eppich-Harris lays out a scene of breathtakingly elegant simplicity. There is a clean depth that we don’t just fall into, an empathy we aren’t forced to feel, and a resolution that sneaks up on us and reveals itself so casually it seems like it was there all along. Great short play worth the reading.
