    This is a funny, weird, and tautly written work. I think this has some of the clearest and most interesting dialogue I have read in a while. These people each have such an idiosyncratic point of view of the world and their behavior is even more so. Read this, fall in love with this, produce this. It's dope.

    Delightfully funny and incredibly weird, Soltero-Brown has delivered another winner here. What I love most about Soltero-Brown's writing is that he creates such fully-fleshed out characters. Don't get me wrong, there is no one LIKABLE in this play (except for Dave, maybe). Taylor is painful, Simon is incredibly weird and cowardly, Rhonda is demanding. They are all deeply flawed people caught in a ridiculous, madcap adventure where things keep getting weirder and funnier and more frustrating. A hilariously frantic show that defies all the stereotypes of an "affair play." Tons of fun, well-written, and structured interestingly.

    Bourgeois love is a complication of its own creation. It is only appropriate that the loopy love triangle present in this work are self-obsessed and selfish, and I approve of the message that ridiculous situations will eventually play themselves out ridiculously. Getting letter-shamed by a world-famous political prisoner is a particularly inspired touch. Dig into Soltero-Brown’s hilarious dialogue and enjoy this hip script!
