    Wonderful play that tells a heart-wrenching story that is so well-told, lyrical while real and filled with specific and relatable, recognizable characters. Hyannis is stunning in its depth and humanity! I hope it is produced often!

    This play, this play, this play. It's such a beautiful, heartbreaking play. It knocked all the wind out of me and left me trying to breathe. Cannot recommend enough. Produce, produce, produce!

    Suuuuch a strong play. Terrific, plausible characters in uncomfortably plausible circumstances -- the constant and implacable threats addiction poses are treated unflinchingly but with great nuance and compassion. A wonderful play I'd love to see.
