    The characters in this piece are so vibrant and specific and the moment where Adele realizes what is in Celia's snow globes was so sweet and also heartbreaking.

    Daly gets right down to it in this mother/daughter face-off. The conflict between a mother who has everything and a daughter who has nothing has been festering for years and the daughter and it finally erupts. Would love to see this performed!

    I had the pleasure to curate and produce CIRCLING THE GLOBE as part of a "Theatre Tapas" in our city's fringe festival in 2019. A fabulous read and even more fabulous to see performed!
