    A beautifully written short, this two-hander has a lot to recommend it for a production for those looking for a drama with heart-wrenching twists and nuanced characters. Highly recommend.

    This play brings two unlikely characters together in a beautiful way! There is potency in the drama in this piece demonstrated delicately with the weight of objects left behind by loved ones on the people left with them. This play's reference to an unseen car and being an "exterior" set play makes it great for 10-minute play festivals and easily produced! I also appreciate a 9/11 play that doesn't retraumatize the audience!

    An unexpected approach to the continued aftershocks of 9/11, this is a beautiful play with nuanced, three-dimensional characters—an expertly-written two-hander with rich roles actors will enjoy digging into.
