    An irresistibly charming comedy that feels like hanging out with a best friend you just met. Holbrook spins colloquial yarns of love, loss, yearning, and hope by way of two of the most likeable characters I've ever had the pleasure of reading.

    Short, sweet, and totally winning, this play lingers in the mind and heart long after having been read. Both characters are delightful, and together they create a memorable, non-sexual chemistry that drives the work forward with a wonderfully loopy, but sincere energy. I'd love to see this staged.

    A play about love, connection, chemistry and difference. JoJo is an asexual messenger of bad news with a message from dumpee to dumper. But she meets the wrong guy. Nevertheless, the new guy has a message of love of his own that needs delievery. Chemistry is a heartfelt dramedy. Plus, you find out about the chemicals in Tide. 4.5 out of 5 stars!

    How refreshing to find a play in which two characters have a sudden chemistry that isn't sexual. The bond between JoJo and Thad is sweet, but not saccharine. Jojo's interest in the science of chemistry provides an amusing counterpoint to the range of interpersonal chemistry experienced and discussed by the characters.

    After reading this, I just really hope that the character Jojo finds someone to cuddle with. The friendship between Thad and JoJo unfolds quickly, but naturally. Great story about love.

    Have you ever felt an instant rapport with a passing stranger that lifted your spirits, even if the connection didn't last long? That's the situation Holbrook dramatizes in the short play "Chemistry." Jojo and Thad connect briefly, but deeply, which is magnificent because their connection begins with miscommunication.

    This is a heartwarming, feel-good story of affirmation and respect based simply upon the fact that we're all humans.
