    "telling stories is telling your version of the truth" oof. Knocked the wind out of me with that line. This beautiful 10 minute play full of thought provoking discussion and prose keeps reminding me why we tell stories, why we write, and in this case, why we write about telling stories and writing. I'm glad NPX has a recommendation feature, but even if it didn't I'd find a way to recommend it.

    A thought-provoking play with strong characters, believable conflict and lovely plot structure. I really enjoyed the read!

    A fascinating 10-minute play that makes you feel like a fly on the wall in this conversation between a teacher and student. Lang does an excellent job of conveying the importance of storytelling and writing with these well-written, complex characters.
