    This surprising, sharp, insightful, and darkly hilarious play was a joy to read. Living in a sometimes absurd, sometimes all too plausible imagined future, Giles' characters grapple with what it means to survive through activism or complacency in our current socio-cultural context. I finished this briskly moving play in one sitting and enjoyed the shocking, titillating, and at times sad or horrifying moments as they unfolded. I'd love to see a production of this!

    This is a well done absurdist relationship comedy that hits on some truly pressing issues. It's a play that will bring out some strong reactions and that's why it needs to be produced.

    I saw the production of this play at First Floor Theatre in Chicago, and was blown away by its originality and irreverence. It was so refreshing to see a dark comedy that was equally as enjoyable to watch as its commentary was refreshing and necessary.
