    "Nostalgically, he loves her." I am going to remember this stage direction forever. This play reminds me of the 'night, Mother standoff, but with further reaching political and personal ramifications. A one-act festival standout.

    Wow, what a play--skillful and fearless and emotionally powerful. A perfect example of how theater can open our eyes and compel us to respond to realities many of us would rather not think about. I'm in awe of this play (and playwright!).

    This play jumps and soars off the page, full of passion and fury. Heart breaking yet full of warmth and humor. Diaz-Marcano has a unique voice, which is confident, playful and daring. I can't wait to see this produced.
