    A touching portrait of two men doing their best—yet still struggling—to be honest with themselves and each other. I love how it heavily focused on historical events without being too expositional or exploitative. Excellent short!

    This play is both an intimate postcard from a very memorable time in our country's recent history and a stirring exploration of masculinity, vulnerability, and grief.

    Love how this play creates a parallel between the physical storm that's approaching and the emotional storm inside these men as they reflect on their families and careers.
