The Thought Doesn't Count

    A lovely scene that deftly delves into such an intimate and vulnerable discussion so many people have had in private about a topic that doesn't get talked about enough. Plus some prop comedy!

    Brilliant use of a prop to reveal information!! So much is said in the moments of silence.

    A wonderful short play! These characters and their relationship feel very real. The sock monkey provides humor, and the ending provides some hope!
