    A stroke of wholesome genius! With its irresistibly charming characters, cleverly crafted dialogue, and a heart of pure gold, McLachlan's beefy short plunders the depths of manhood and presents us with the nougaty center that lies at its core.

    This play is everything one wants from a ten-minute piece: a relevant and empathetic premise delivered through the lens of a truly hilarious and ingenious concept. McLachlan's dialogue here is so witty and spot-on, as are his observations on masculinity and male friendships. This would be a true delight to produce as actors would get a lot of mileage out of these outrageously funny characters!
