    A great monologue for a teenage girl to use in an audition, and a great short play to perform for young audiences. In a few pages it deals with some timely tough issues: mass shootings, friendship, God, fear, and healing.
    Jam packed with emotion, it is a riveting piece of theatre.

    This young woman's voice feels so authentic. Her desire for change for a broken world is also our own. Her invitation, she reminds us, is the one we need to extend to others, regardless of our differences. Highly recommended for a theatre festival showcasing plays on gun control.

    Loewenstern's offering to Code Red Playwrights' latest volume of shorts features a young woman rallying her peers in the wake of a church shooting. Like her, to help in healing, we must allow ourselves to let others inside our circle... regardless of their political or spiritual inclinations... if we are to soldier on.
