    A masterful little tale. The characters are rich and the story is so beautiful. A wonderful read that should translate to the stage brilliantly.

    Fantastic short play--surprising, funny and moving. Would be marvelous on stage!

    A stunning play that features two very different characters that find a brief moment of connection. The ending is a real gut punch.
