    A couple waltzing in an airport - all innocence and mischievous love - highlights who we lose to the senseless violence of our times. We see their lives. We know their past, their present and where they’re going in the immediate future. We know them. We care. Desperately. A tender play that honors life.

    What a moving and beautiful memorial to a tragic event. A sweet, romantic piece - uplifting, even though it is tragic. Delicately written, yet powerful in its compactness.

    Such a devastating and beautiful short piece. I had tears in my eyes before page three. I'm so impressed at the deft hand Jordan Elizabeth Henry uses in this sparse and haunting play. A necessary addition to anyone who's putting together an evening about gun violence, because in the levity and ease of the piece lies the truth of how much is at stake if we continue to let this violence occur unchecked.
