    A wrenching reminder, a call to action, poetic and resonant, powerful and true. How astonishing to consider how many more incidents of mass gun violence have happened since this play was written. So many, so commonplace, that our hearts and minds barely register them anymore. This play can help to change that.

    Gut-wrenching tribute to victims of gun-violence. Burbano captures that confusion and uncertainty of losing a loved-one so well in her ten minute play and the last line is one of sheer poetry!

    The monologue about laughing is one of the best pieces of writing I’ve had the honor to come across in a long time, how abominable the circumstances that engendered it. This is truly heartbreaking work. From the moment Andie walks in, the play tells you a sin has occurred, an offense against god. This is an astonishing play, a work that pits its characters against morality of an ethereal, intangible kind. This is pure drama bred from real death and tragedy.
