    When you think of "pure imagination", I hope you think of "Everlasting Chocolate Therapy". This play is definitely a sweet treat. It's very hard to find sincerely fun and funny new plays in these dark days, but Hayet has given us exactly that—plus, a Golden Ticket! "Everlasting Chocolate Therapy" uses the framework of a beloved childhood classic to answer bigger questions for the characters and encourage us all to keep embracing change.

    Oh yes! Who wouldn't adore this? Absolutely delightful to any Willie Wonka lover. It's heartfelt and creative, I absolutely adored it. Wonderful!

    Hayet clearly loves and respects Roald Dahl's classic story, and this comedic full-length play is a wonderful nod to the original.

    Like Dahl, Hayet includes fantasy, silly humor and casual cruelty. Hayet also dramatizes life lessons, but the characters in this play sort things out for themselves and become more self-aware, rather than having lessons forced upon them.

    Also, it's a very funny script.

    Whenever this play is staged, sign me up for a golden ticket because it will truly be a magical experience. Most probably love the original book and movie and I'm definitely one of those, but Hayet has created a sequel that is so heartfelt, and in his own words, "Creativity with Consequence." This sequel, set 15 years later had me looking at those things that we want and the price one can pay for wanting them. I'm too much like Chuck for my own comfort, but I still believe in the ability to change the world just like him.

    Hayet spoofs the long-term after-effects of a very famous and classic childrens' tale, continuing the story 15 years after its original events. The characters are no longer children, but extremely maladjusted young adults, with more mature issues, or...disorders. Hayet keeps everything set inside a world where the fantastic is possible, but now of less interest to the five reunited, former contestants of - they're all agreed - an altogether traumatizing contest with life-lasting consequences that were not fair to have bestowed upon adolescents. Filled with in-jokes, puns, and crude myth busting, this dark parody of ambitions is quick-witted and riotous.
