    A perfect analogy that is so incredibly fun. Every democrat and Halloween fan will love the horror! Well done.

    OMG, this play is SO MUCH FUN. The jokes are fast and furious and the satire is sharp. Perfect for any short play fest.

    Absolutely perfect: equal parts hysterical and horrifying, like living in a really funny nightmare. Terrific satire of the political climate of bickering, nonsense-talk, and straw-manning. And there are just so many quotable lines. PUMPKIN should be a part of every political short play festival -- the audience will be in hysterics during the performance, and deep in discussion afterwards.
