    I just love Bohannon's voice. I am always so excited to read one of her plays because she is so funny, fresh, and youthful. This play is no exception to that rule--and even better yet, it's full of delightful geekdom references! I loved all the twists and turns in this play--and just when you think it might be a drama, it becomes a comedy again, and back and forth it goes. Two actors would love these characters--and I can easily see this being an audience favorite.

    A fun look down memory lane! As someone that has unabashedly eaten up these books I absolutely understand these characters. Some of these one liners are zingers and made me laugh out loud. Bohannon also has a nice way of subtly introducing a twist. Looking forward to reading more of her work!

    A clever riff on fan culture using two friends who debate their reading habits. If you started Harry Potter as a child and were an adult when the last book came out - but you still desperately needed to read it - you know these people. It's a coming of age tale with Harry Potter/Twilight and captures the nuances of these books as backdrops of a life. There's a lovely turn when you realize one of the characters is using the books as a gauge for his future. And the little surprise at the end - surprise!
