    An intensely moving play with sharply drawn, richly inhabited characters. Yasmin's gift with dialogue is so assured that you can really feel the full weight of all of the living these characters have had before they reached this point. The piece documents traumas in a clear-eyed way, but it also shows the path out, the way to redemption for these characters.

    A fantastic addition to the canon of Southern Theatre. A play about a trans person that isn't about them transitioning or coming out. Trans people deal with other things like having to bury their father. Such an intimate play with rich characters that have deep ties with each other. No one is good or evil here. Everyone is just doing their best.
