    Whew. An incredible look at how we deal with privacy and identity in today's age. The characters deliver some hard truths and difficult introspection with realistic and comedic dialogue. Each character is specific and nuanced, I especially love the way the character of Clara is pulled back from the edge of being a victimy-trope. She speaks truths to what it means to be "an undateable girl" but refreshingly flawed and not completely innocent. These are great roles for actors in their 20s with some incredible monologues.

    Moss captures natural speech with an uncanny accuracy, highlighting the humor from the irregular timing and cadences of real conversations. An exceptionally interesting premise and wonderfully executed arc! This had me rolling around in stitches while also confronting some hard truths about intimacy and relationships.

    Brilliant Play! A most wonderful comedy, perfect in so many ways: when Tim becomes the monster, the way each character = their phones, the way we see the video live, the way everyone is trying so hard to be "real" - I thoroughly enjoyed it. But the best thing is how clear Moss writes about the way men treat women as garbage, the wonderful way Clara lets Matabang know that he treated her poorly even before she learns the extent of it. Thank you Moss for making this - I hope it gets produced everywhere!

    A complex look at identity and the various levels privacy can be infringed upon. It's fascinating to watch a play about consent and who gets to post videos of who online, while all the characters are constantly sharing and laughing over "fail" videos and other viral content. While they agree they'd never themselves want to be a meme, where's the line between just good ol' fun and exploitation? Is there one at all? Moss has fantastic dialogue and writing throughout. Excellent work.

    To say that I love this play doesn't feel like enough. I read this play, and there were so many parts that were so true, so real, so personal that I felt raw seeing them on the page. This is an absolutely remarkable play, about as perfect as it gets. Moss' dialogue, characters, everything is so perfectly placed to create such a remarkable effect. This is one of my favorite plays on NPX and you need to put down whatever you're doing and read it now and then produce it again and again and again.

    Dealing with the values we place on ourselves and on others, and how those values have been skewed by technology, the play cleverly places the audience in the same position as Matabang and Joseph, as we also observe the unfolding love story. The writing is extremely funny, fast-paced, and observant. What comes through most is the honesty of the playwright — we feel that something private has been revealed, while at the same time the play makes us feel culpable for enjoying it. Highly recommended!

    Jessica Moss has a way of capturing the voice of the 20-something, with all its quirks, humor, and sincerity. An engaging story that keeps you reading, while all at once hitting speeches that make you say, "o no it me."

    Really enjoyed this play. Very realistic dialogue and characters. I found myself getting angry at certain moments, which proved I was truly invested in the story! Lots of funny moments, even laughed out loud a few times. Timely as well, leaves you with a lot to think about.

    CAM BABY was meticulously plotted, incredibly engaging, funny, anxiety-producing, current, and emotionally devastating. Jessica has tuned in to an incredibly dramatically rich story that hits at both current issues and long-standing concerns of human nature. A truly wonderful play.

    Equal parts laugh and gasp out loud, this play is both funny and thought provoking with characters who are all too real. I loved reading this play and had a lot of fun imagining its staging. Produce it!
