    "Playing with Fired" is too much fun. I loved it from start to finish, and every twist along the way was perfect. It deserves all the honors it has received, and more.

    These ponies keep partying! This show is quirky, cute, well-paced and endearing. Interesting and unexpected in its plot narrative and message, this little play is another heartfelt and an enjoyable experience from Hayet.
