    A perfect play for an actor and actress to perform. There is a lot to play with regarding the dialogue as Ben and Michelle go back and forth between hate and love. Mark Loewenstern does an excellent job examining the pain and confusion of divorce in this thought-provoking ten minute play. Well done!

    This must be the most difficult situation for a couple to try to pull away from, split between love and hate, probably in equal measure. Mark portrays this brilliantly in this well written, beautiful play. I couldn't help but want to shout at them "get back together, you both know you want to!" Great!

    Loewenstern's moving, theatrical and expertly written play shows in its taut ten minutes a newly divorced couple still deeply connected to each other yet unable to figure out how to navigate that connection or what to do about it. It's no surprise this powerfully truthful play has received so many productions. As an added bonus a monologue from the play can now be viewed on YouTube as part of Mind the Gap Theatre's Housebound Series. Grab it!
