    A beautifully done play on the intimacy we all crave and sometimes we really need that hug, even if it's from our friend. Very sweet!

    Two office mates feel sort of alienated from their wives on Valentine's Day which leads to the need for closeness. It's not what you think but some manly hugs are just the cure. Perfect play for Valentine's Day.

    Sometimes we need more compassion in our lives than passion, and Hoke demonstrates this beautifully in this little gem of a play. The dialogue flows with gentle humor towards a heartfelt and deeply satisfying conclusion.
