    A comedy for anyone who has ever overthought a relationship or a situation only to realize that they haven't even scratched the surface and life is just a step into the void. So funny and one that stays with you.

    I too was at a parallel session at Midwest in 2019 and so missed this sparkling rom-com. Dickens takes an unusual and entirely successful approach to direct address here, situating her play in the mind of a stumbling but likable nerd for whom the possibilities of failure are endless, but for whom at the end the possibilities of success are endless too. I love the buoyancy and ease of the dialogue, and the ingenious play with structure in which the slightest change of direction can lead to an entirely unexpected outcome. Nice font in the script, too.

    "Inevitable" is a lovely piece where the possibilities are endless! Dicken's masterful comedy is displayed here in Simon's hypothetical of hypotheticals. There is something touching here about the fact that love can not be narrowed down to a science and that the world inevitably is unpredictable. I did not get a chance to see it at the Midwest Dramatist's Conference, but boy am I glad I read it now!
