    Tis play is a wonderful exploration of how important camaraderie is during some of the most private and difficult moments in life. Every character has a different experience and each experience is treated with equal weight which makes it easy to find many things to connect with throughout the story. With both laugh-out loud and beautifully heartbreaking moments, this story a wonderful arc, great parts of actors, and a surprise visit from Blood Mary.
