    After reading this, I found I want to hear more adventures of the Cat and Fish. Stranger friendships than this may develop but none this fun. I want to look back into this particular window again.

    What a delightful play! The rhythm of the dialogue between Fish and Cat is great, which would make this a joy to hear as well as see. And so many creative possibilities for bringing this to life on stage!

    A delightful dive into the existential imagination of two pets. The dialogue is quick and witty, and leaves plenty of room for actors and directors to play. The absurdity of the situation and tone are perfect and those of us with the opportunity to day dream are sure to fall in love with it.

    Whatever human is living with Fish and Cat has no idea what they are missing. An improbable friendship. A lesson in life. A knowledge that is all pared down. The sun rises. The sun sets. And there we go. Yes, absurd. But can absurd have a tender side? I hope wherever you are, the gravel is edible and you have a friendship close to what Fish and Cat have.

    The Window deserves all of the praise it's receiving and more. It's a high-water mark of 10-minute plays--intelligent, funny, moving. The characters are so engaging, I was almost mournful as I hit the last page, as it meant my time with the Cat and the Fish were done. It's a piece that stays with you, and one I hope will be widely produced.

    FISH and CAT have everything between them, and a vast, wide emptiness, in their big/little apartment world. Canfield explores the dynamics between these two cautionary besties, I mean, a FISH and a CAT coexisting? After a month of quarantining, I can't help read this play through that lens. I never thought I could get so excited about gravel, but I was reading up on gravel deliveries just today! Does that make me the fish? Which one are you? Prescient, relatable, and chockfull of steel-eyed observations. A great pick for your next festival. It would also be brilliant on Zoom.

    So much is going on in this short piece it makes my head swim – and I love that about it. It's a dazzling, surreal bit of wonderfully layered wordplay, as funny as it is serious, and as absurd as it is sensible. Great roles, great potential for creative direction and design, and just a great time that I'm sure plays even better than it reads – which is pretty damn great.

    As charming as it is absurd. As absurd as it is funny. A terrific piece with much more to it than first appears.

    What a charming and funny play. And it takes on so much more meaning now in the new normal of confinement and self-quarantine with Cat and Fish making their own rules of the game as they watch the world around them. I can see why this won the Audience Favorite at the festival. It's become one of mine.

    A delightfully absurdist piece which deftly and cleverly, examines the extremes of living in the now and the over-examined life. It was like a Gary Larson cartoon brought to the stage. SO funny! This would be a crowd pleaser in a night of short plays - both highly entertaining while also touching on some deeper questions about the human experience (while never letting on that it is doing so).
