    I had the fortunate opportunity to witness the reading of this incredible new play at the Kennedy Center MFA Workshop 2018. It was a rare in its ability to address the impact of climate change while also evoking the simple beauty of human love and interaction. I love the potential of the casting and the playfulness and humor juxtaposed to the serious dramatic themes.

    I love this play and can't wait to see it produced. This story of two people brought together by climate and cirumstance is Beckett-like in its approach to communication, setting the stage for two remarkable performances. This is your play if you'd like a dark comedy about the connections humans make and break, and the magic that can result from a bond beween humans. (Oh, and a rabbit.)
