    Such a fun piece! Ended our student-directed ten minute play festival and was the perfect way to end the evening on a high note.

    The pinnacle of 10-minute comedy. Great concept, airtight execution, and an absolute laugh.

    This play is absolutely delightful! The concept is so unique and hilarious and the witty lines had me smiling the entire time I was reading it.

    Sweet, lovely, authentic - just pure magic! Mark Harvey Levine does it again with a highly original premise that leads to terrific comedy, relateable conflict, and a twist that - ironically - the audience sees coming before the protagonist (read the play to get the irony!). A very special, meticulously-crafted short play.

    There are several reasons this very funny short comedy has been produced worldwide since 2000: terrific timing not only on verbal jokes but also visual ones, a central premise that skews from the expected to the ridiculous, and at its core a situation that a lot of people can relate to -- the breakup of a relationship. And the sweet ending is well deserved.

    Mark Harvey Levine delivers an absolutely beautiful script for theaters at all levels -- high school, college, community, professional -- to produce. "Surprise" is outstanding for performers, directors, and audiences.

    Flawless. Mark Harvey Levine's Surprise had me laughing almost before it began, and you don't have to be psychic to know that this play is a sure fire audience pleaser wherever it is produced. Can wait to see it on stage!

    Physical humor, snappy dialogue, and oh yeah - surprise! Fun for all and again - surprise! MH Levine keeps the surprises coming - don’t try to be psychic - just enjoy the ride.

    This is a play for two actors who really like to have fun. Quick, witty dialogue punctuated by interruptions and sparking emotions. I'd love to direct this one!

    I figured it was about time I read this play, since it's been on multitudes of short play winner lists from here to Canberra. And now I can see why! MHL at his finest!
