    This is a gem of a short play. Brilliant concept and totally delightful execution. It's the best beard "limbo" imaginable, and the re-liberation (finally self-liberation) of Tiffany is worth cheering about. Very, very funny work.

    There’s a whole new level of “beards” in this cleverly conceived comedy. Long after the laughs, long after you’re done rooting for both Tiffany and Rupert, you will be lost in thought. Bavoso will have you in the palm of his hands. As it turns out, it is the perfect place to be.

    A lighthearted comedy of a possibility that feels totally unexplored: What happens to all those Canadian Girlfriends? Very funny, a great addition to any festival.
