    Interesting story with surprising twists. Well-written, moves along nicely and this reader wanted to know more as I went along for the ride. A sweet ending completes the ride.

    Two different and clearly drawn young men haltingly work through their differences, defenses, and oddly shared/not shared histories to reach a tender and deeply satisfying resolution. Their sparring and its subtexts are engaging throughout.

    Lots of lovely surprises as this progresses, and it's clear that there's so much to work out between the two fully drawn characters, but in this short play they get to what's necessary in order to connect, and that's a beautiful thing. Wonderful work!
