    Priceless - especially the stage manager's revelation. The tension between these two moms is familiar, worrisome, AND hilarious! This would be a treat at any 10-minute festival.

    It's the battle of the stage mothers! Who will win this showdown? A very fun nod to the mothers behind the scenes.
