    A hilarious piece about waiting on line to vote and the inability to leave people to make their individual decisions. Well done.

    I've said it before but I just love Soltero-Brown's work, which is always dramatically taut and simultaneously full of poetry. This playwright does amazing things with language and structure, and this particular play also has a sly sense of humor that's remarkable and wonderfully surprising given the strong political message here. This is a playwright to watch.

    I read this play at least three times before writing this recommendation and would continue to read it a million times more. This is definitely a play that teaches you to listen. This voting line seems eternal with no real answers because there is no difference between "my guy" or "your guy" and opinions can be swayed the longer these characters wait in this line. A domino effect occurs with a simple sneeze that gets the characters talking, or rather, maybe, trying to do the hardest part when standing in a line w/stangers...listen.
