    Here is such a poignant piece that O'Grady creates with great skill. Her light touch lets us experience the frustration, confusion and rejection this young woman is forced to manage and provides - through music and the act of listening - a way for Hailey to move forward. Beautiful!

    Music can ultimately be the greatest door towards discovery and understanding. It bonds and connects us in a beautiful way and is incredibly healing. Excellent!

    A charming play which captures the all the angst and wonder of being a teenage girl in a difficult world. Moving and funny, with a great role for a young actress.
