    A mother's worst nightmare. A driver's horrifying moment. A nation's greatest crisis. Worlds collide in this powerful short play by JENNIFER O'GRADY. Pure brilliance.

    A SPLIT SECOND was moving, captivating, devastating, and beautiful. O'Grady drew me in from start to finish, crafting an important play about how our world is more connected than we think. Never take anything for granted. Well done!

    A hard, beautiful, devastating play about the ways we all are connected, for better and for worse. Every parent's nightmare handled with care and expertise by playwright Jennifer O'Grady. A SPLIT SECOND reminds us of how we all live on borrowed time.

    A devastating play that gives you different points-of-view at once - tied together by the same situation. The intensity of the story and the needs of the character spring this play forward to reveal its tragedy. Well done, O'Grady!

    Jennifer O'Grady has structured this short play in a compelling way, even more so than if the focus was simply on the parent or on the driver. Spare dialogue conveys the subtext and the tragedy of this accident. Well done!

    A heartbreaking short play, all the more so for its conciseness, its understated tragedy, its whallop of a slowly and painfully building realization that shatters the reader at the same time that it satisfies through its artful handling of trauma, addiction and the lasting effects of split-second decisions on our loved ones.

    Heart-stopper of a play! Beautifully rendered with the split-stage and the consequences of a story we put together in the audience as the 2 women relate their stories in 2 different states (metaphorically and actual). O'Grady has written a terribly real tragedy.
