    I highly recommend this beautifully written and heartfelt script. 29th Street did a staged reading of it, and it was a highlight that night. It would be a wonderful addition to any short play festival!

    Eugenie Carabatsos creates palpable intimacy with these two characters in the play’s brief pages. Reading it felt like a sort of coming home, a searching for something that might not exist anymore, but you have to look for it anyway because until now you didn’t realize how wonderful it was. I have friends like that, that I hold in my heart after years. This would be such a lovely play to see live. Lots for two actors to dig into.

    This is a clear and affecting short play about the challenges of reconnecting and rediscovering a friendship that has faded. Years have passed for Kat and Beth, but the good and bad they experienced together and apart have stayed with them. The play also looks at the way a single aspect of a person or a personality can dominate our memory and how, in the same way, a single aspect of a shared past can help to bring together those who have been apart for a long time.
