    A wonderfully cinematic and exhilarating journey. Bohannon has crafted a world and characters that feel real, vulnerable, and at times all too familiar. A funny, fascinating, enthralling play that deserves to find life on the stage.

    Every character is a complete package and it’s fun to see what each new person brings to the script. Maggie and her situation feels oh so real and then tension when everything comes crashing down! Little details round out this piece. Well done!

    It's an age old crime, when faced with an ever worsening crisis of survival, women have been forced to get creative. But with the age of social media, we judge ourselves constantly and others in addition to being terrified that our secrets could leak out on the internet. A powerful examination of the ways we try to get by and the stigma it can carry. Great work!
