    Perfect for the stage, this tender piece follows two partners who are struggling to rebuild physical intimacy after one has undergone trauma. There's a lot for the actors to dig into and work with here.

    Violette does a great job of creating triggers and moments of danger that drive the characters away from each other in this beautifully relatable play about intimacy after trauma. I also appreciate the title that spins several ways.

    A quiet look at intimacy and rebuilding after trauma. So much space for wonderful subtext. Also a really fun short for a sound designer to work on, so many possibilities.
