    A fierce play with FANTASTIC roles for young women. DRY LAND deals with the complexities of growing up, complicated friendships, identity, and abortion. It's refreshing to find a play dealing with abortion that isn't shaming anyone for wanting an abortion. The play made me laugh and cry, and feel a whole hell of a lot for the two main characters as they bump into one another trying to find purchase on another human being. And, having two kids on swim team, I really appreciate the attention to details around swimming.

    A really moving play about young women on a swim team. So visual and throughout the play I was very aware of the smells, especially the chlorine and anything else that can stand up to it. There is so much that they go through alone without any adult guidance or assistance and they are brave and admirable even when they aren't particularly nice to each other. Feels intensely real.
