    Diana Burbano's play is a heartbreaking elegy to the victims of senseless gun violence (is there any other kind?) and the holes they leave in the lives of the survivors. This is a beautiful and powerful short play that needs to be seen.

    I'm in tears.

    Burbano writes with so much precision not only about the tragic facts of this loss, but how Andie feels when thinking about this loss. So many details in such a short amount of time on stage that an audience will be in tears about how life can become so unfair, devastating, and senseless so quickly. And how living through it may be impossible.

    A heart wrenching tale of what could have been, one life lost literally, and another lost and wandering. Stuck in a limbo when her fiancé is killed, we see the anguish of not only losing your love, but finding that you don’t have a place in the world they left behind. Powerful.
