    A young woman, "HOSTESS", grieves and leads her community of fellow students simultaneously. While fervent in her beliefs, she opens her heart to those who don't agree with her. Recommended for theaters, educational settings, gun safety training, diversity/tolerance seminars, houses of worship.

    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.
