    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.

    At its core, this monologue written for a young and strong female character tells a true tale of friendship. It shows us that at the moment when we might be the most broken, we can be lifted up by each other and God and although we may not see the same solution to the problems that we are facing, we can still be the comfort that each other needs. This play seems very authentically written in the voice of a teenager.

    This is a very moving piece about a young woman struggling with her faith after a mass shooting, which lets us into the rare world of revivals. This would be a great addition to any program on gun violence.

    What a fantastic monologue. I love the surprising way it unfolds, and when I reached the end I understood that it is, in essence, a monologue about friendship, and of the most meaningful kind. Terrific.

    A moving tribute written as part of the Code Red/Faith plays, SYATP by Loewenstern pulls out such emotions as one reads or listens to the Hostess talk about her experience and the real beauty for me was the ending where you realize that truth faith does start small and that faith can sometimes occur when you think it's not possible and that reminder to just always be aware of those small points of time when we can all be there for one another in their hour of need.
