    Absolutely jarring and poignant. I was hooked from the beginning to the end. Masterfully written and dark enough to pique my interest.

    The play tackles modern issues (the topic of women’s rights) through flipped gender roles as a satirical piece on how men trample over the rights of women on a daily basis. I like how the play is trippy with the switch in gender roles, and I think that the message is very powerful.

    This is an interesting and unfortunately necessary think piece in reversing the very real issues women in this country are facing--this play holds no punches and is painful and cathartic to experience! I definitely recommend this!
