    What happens when BFFs discover their forever friendship might not stand the test of time? In this moving play, a decades-long friendship is challenged by a sudden turn in luck and the harsh realities that unspool when someone loses their foothold in society.
    I've been lucky enough to hear this play in an earlier iteration and even luckier to read the most recent draft. Donna has an uncanny way of refining her story without losing any of the beauty or magic of the original.
    And I always cry at the end.

    Smart, funny, and moving, this generational comedy with an all-female cast should be playing on stages across the country. There's something disarmingly complex about the humans and friendships Donna has created. We see them so rarely in the theatre, and real life.

    I read this script during the development stage, and I encourage you to look at this piece, especially if you're looking for an all-female cast and realize that most theatre ticket purchasers are women. Hoke's dialogue is smart, funny, nuanced, and tense as she explores the fragility of female friendship. There are several events in this play that cause these BFFs to drift apart, and Hoke does a great job keeping multiple stories going at once. The family secret at the center is also the stuff of Greek tragedy...read & produce this!

    Beneath the many laugh-out-loud moments that swirl through this melancholy comedy lies a poignant look at female friendship – its ups and downs, ins and outs, smiles and tears. Add in the distancing effects of time and a stark shift of economic status, and suddenly that friendship is stretched in ways that will resonate with not just women, but also more than a few men, I’ll bet. Engagingly written, deftly observed, and full of heart!
