    I love well done time travel plays, and this one hits all the best tropes (while still feeling fresh), keeps the brain engaged (while still giving enough breath room to keep up), and is packed with laughs (while always falling on the right side of the too far/just far enough comedic line).

    Pure delight from start to finish. Lam's voice is so fantastic in this piece--and it's funny and poignant and smart and everything that a great romcom should be. Wildly original and full of all kinds sweet sci-fi, this play is bound to be an audience pleaser. I can see this being performed at tons of ten minute play festivals, and probably winning audience favorite in nearly all of them. Lam is a gifted playwright--and I look forward to exploring more of his work.

    A sweet, funny sci-fi romp with a wonderfully tender side. Lam’s set up is amazingly specific and his pay off is fantastically charming. And don’t let the sci-fi scare you off, Interventions is rooted in the kind of real-world experiences that makes science fiction so wonderful. A delight.
