    This piece is an astutely written, pitch perfect dark comedy about the ways women's bodies are legislated, commodified, and used by patriarchal structures. Antone has crafted some amazingly rendered characters with unique voices, a well-fleshed out fantastical theatrical world, and an insightful exploration of the aforementioned themes in a hilarious fashion. Absurdity is used so effectively to gesture towards the awful and ridiculous real-life themes that are getting metaphorical/theatrical treatment here. The brazen theatricality of the stage directions makes my brain instantly try to imagine the world of this play. I hope to follow its development trajectory.

    What. Did. I. Just. Read. And I mean that in the best possible way. This play is zany, brilliantly absurd, and laugh-out-loud hilarious, all while making a highly relevant statement about women's bodily autonomy and sexuality. Just read it. And then produce it, because I would pay anything to see this on stage.

    Tiffany Antone has created a sparkling play full of analogies to the way those with vaginas are treated in today's times. It is inventive, wonderfully shocking, and these characters are incandescently different, hilarious, and moving through the work at a breakneck pace. Masterfully done with a lot for an audience to consider.
