    This is a touching and poignant play about a moment in (not "the" moment "of," ha) the life of two sisters. Will they grow closer? Will they grow apart? Who can say. Right now, it's very satisfying to just listen to them talk for a bit.

    This strikes at the heart of what two sisters are all about. The conversation is so typical of siblings. Also, Lang gets to a theme that is important and deals with the passage of time. This is philosophy clad in familial
    terms - nice!

    I am just blown away by the depths that Lang was able to go to in the relationship of these two sisters in such a short amount of time. This play is a gift to young actors.
