    Alex and Trip, two men in their 20's and 30's, show genuine camaraderie and affection for one another in Blaisdell's Act with 14 Words. She skillfully shows that these are intimate, private moments that both men enjoy -- their actions are that well defined. But with fourteen words, Blaisdell turns everything on its head, and the audience realizes we didn't know what we we thought we did. Questions abound and concerns arise for these men and their relationship. Well done.

    In reading this beautiful short piece by Blaisdell, it occurred to me that I am always so afraid to not having people speaking on stage, and this poetic piece does just that,telling the story in mostly in actions and there's such a richness in that. Such a great read and would love to see this on the stage!

    What a wonderful succinct short. I love the tenderness and playfulness between the two characters, the actually doing things onstage that take time, and the power of movement in this piece. I'm really excited to dive in and read more work by Blaisdell.
