    This play reminded me so much of my own youth, graduations, and sibling comparisons. Feeling overshadowed by momentous events can be rough, and this play captures the anxiety of change as well as the tenderness that can come when two siblings connect and focus on each other amidst the chaos. A great choice for festivals and student actors alike.

    This touching piece captures the relationship between two sisters in a beautifully authentic way. The dialogue feels genuine and real, and the story really teaches us about the importance of cherishing time with loved ones.

    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.
