    This is so uniquely written: both characters are hilariously sympathetic. I really felt that awkward to my core of age 14 the entire 7 minutes. Great stuff.

    We produced "Seven Minutes in Heaven" for Barrington Stage's 10x10 Festival and the play was a great success. Adorable, touching, and funny. This is a piece that can work with young actors or adult actors (in our case) playing tweens and is a great comedic piece that has real depth in under seven minutes.

    I had the chance to see this at a reading in 2016 and immediately loved how the author created realistic and relatable teens, that still had hilarious and beautiful flaws. As the head of an acting showcase the following fall, it was a perfect fit for our program. It allowed actors and a director to delve into a tense but funny situation. I'm deeply happy I had the chance to encounter this play at all, and I hope anyone else who does will enjoy it as much as I do.
