    Wow, this play is great. Uncomfortable and funny and horrifying and so, so true. Two women are on the cusp of finally making it when they find out that the man involved in their project - the man who is the reason they're on the cusp of finally making it - raped someone. But it was years ago, and if they say something, another opportunity like this might never come along. What to do? Such a wonderful piece.

    A haunting dark comedy about the desire for success vs the desire to help your "friends," along with even more difficult questions. The ways in which the characters desperately fight the white patriarchy but only wind up tangling themselves further into its web is dizzying. I read this in one entire read - the flow of the action kept me hooked up until the last word. I'm so happy to have been introduced to Rachel's work with this play. Can't wait to read more!

    A blistering, sharp dark comedy that explores in a complex manner the ways that toxic patriarchy pits women of various genders and femme-identifying folks against one another in order to maintain its insidious hold on the world. Lynett's characters are deftly written and, as always, her eye towards their intersectional identities provides an essential level of nuance that must be brought to the conversations and issues she holds space for in her pieces. The rhythm of the dialogue is on point, and the dissolution of the line between entertainment and indictment brilliant. The final moment is a gut-punching coda.

    I knew from the first few pages that this would be a play that would haunt me. What’s happening in this play are ugly conversations that we would love to just ignore but we need to confront them. Lynett has written a play that will leave its audience in a stunned state and after they slowly get up from their seat they will need to discuss for days.

    Lynett has a gift for writing the plays we need. She not only does it again but broaches the topic in a way that hasn't been done before. Instead of watching people discuss "if" the assault happened, we watch them discuss how it effects them individually and "if" there is a way to minimize the fallout. This is a very important play that definitely deserves more attention in for a plethora of reasons- but especially among theatre practitioners wanting to do their part in the #mettoo and #timesup era.
