    An insightful, subtle, and darkly humorous play that uproots and shines a light on the insidiousness of ignorance, micro-aggressions, and gentrification.

    A play that digs beyond the small talk into the issues prevalent to the neighborhood and the desire for a community garden. Well done.

    I love simple, straight-forward plays such as this that double as a brilliant piece of social commentary.
