    An engaging dark comedy that reveals many layers of the sisters' relationship in a short, pithy piece. I enjoyed reading several of Claudia's pieces.

    I adore the way Haas writes sisters. They have such a deep, natural relationship--and Beth and Letia are polar opposites. I love how Mom's urn is an odd third character. I couldn't stop smiling as I read this play--it's silly and crazy and ridiculous, but it's tender and heartfelt and a little spooky. Two actresses would love this hilarious ten minute play--and audiences would connect too.

    I love this play! The humor and the sisters and their discussions of snakes, ghosts and aliens. The bond between them is so believable and the dialogue is so funny and the action flies by because of it. There's never one false word in this tightly woven gem!! Bravo!
