    So funny and scary. Would love to see this staged!

    Catherine is dangerously good at writing plays that put us in the headspace of its characters. In the same way these two housewives are never quite sure of their reality, we are left to question the reality of the play and the reality of these womens lives and how their interactions echo into modern day. It also has one of the funniest last lines I've ever read. A terrifying but hilarious read.

    The juicy rich dialogue is irresistible, the playful setting would be a joy to design, and the undercurrent of rage makes this piece perennially relevant.
