    Absolutely worthy of all of its accolades. The sibling dynamic is captured and used uniquely in this short play. Now that I think about it Pitts is exceptionally skilled at writing sisters (check out some of her other work to see what I mean). Do yourself a favor and take a few minutes out of your day to read this touching and honest script.

    Heartwarming and heartwrenching at the same time. Pitts established an entire family dynamic in 10 minutes and was able to give us a broad view of who these sisters are.

    This is a beautifully structured ten minute script. The humor and heart weave together to create a lovely story and sibling relationship. Absolutely beautiful.
