    I love the unusual and darkly comic plot of this ten-minute play and its strong female characters. Would be a terrific piece for female actors to perform,

    What a refreshingly breezy read! Fun and confident, light-hearted and spacious and featuring something we don't see enough of: Excellent roles for teen girls! It is not surprising that this delightful play is among the most-recommended short plays on NPX. It would be such fun to produce, and is engaging, and appropriate, for younger performers. Perfect for a short play festival, or a drama class showcase.

    The combination of the somewhat absurd scenario and the strong, realistically portrayed sisterly relationship makes this play hilarious and oddly moving! Also a great idea for school festivals.
