    This play is timely and relevant. It’s a perfect example of what happens when one sex is controlled by another. Both sides have a point, but until you walk in the others shoes you can’t appreciate their stance.

    What an eerie and awesomely horrific play--the subverting of gender stereotypes and the parallel language used to discuss bodily autonomy are fascinating and electric. A great play with real punch behind it! Give it a read!

    As a person who's fascinated by stories of women and power, I found this a treat. The reversal of the power roles is sharp and striking. This play makes it obvious how limited our usual vision is. It's timely and fun.
