    I really love this. I read it twice and found even more bits that I think would be really fun to see two actors play with onstage (especially because they get to play the same person at different points in their life). Would love to see this produced somewhere.

    It may be natural to look forward to the future, to anticipate the changes that may happen in our lives, but Houg's gentle, fantasy-comedy reminds us that living fully in the moment is the most important thing. Nicely drawn characters and a lovely theme.

    This play is deceptively simple; you think you know where it's going but when you get to the end, you have to go back and read it again for it to fully sink in. Good job!
