    I read this play in a women playwrights class at university, and it was my favorite of the scripts we read. Such an honest, open look into female friendships and relationships. This play is stunning, shocking, and beautiful. It is so much about women showing up for each other, and gives grace and validity to the teenage woman experience. Everyone needs to read this play, for a glimpse into the lives young women lead and the choices they make.

    Such a fantastic and nuanced play about friendship between teenagers. There is absolutely not a false note in this piece, and Ester and Amy are two of the most compelling and wonderfully rendered teens I've read/seen. Additionally, the supporting characters round out the piece in impactful and well-chosen moments depicted onstage. Wrenching in some ways, but also extremely sweet and intimate. I saw this produced in Boston a few years ago, and it has definitely stuck with me since then. Hope to see it produced frequently in colleges around the country.

    This play does not pull punches! Literally! It is a raw look at the terrifying decisions that teens are faced with. This play has three vibrant parts for young women! I highly recommend for college theatre programs and theatres that work with teens!
