    I had the pleasure and honor of directing this play with Ensemble Theatre in Cleveland, OH. The dialogue is crisp and weaves the story & characters with delicate precision. It's two great roles for young actors, and audiences were hooked from start to finish thanks to the way David is able to use humor & nuance to tell the story of Charles and Dani. Highly recommend.

    A lovely nuanced play. GREAT material for actors. Always stays one step ahead of the audience, even as it re-explores past events. Honest, natural dialogue that remains eloquent and funny. This is a play with a heart worthy of being broken.

    This play grabs the reader and holds on. It flows seamlessly while it challenges the function of memory. The dialogue never stumbles or stalls, the characters rich and engaging. I can't imagine a soul out there who hasn't been in their skin. And although this is a deeply textured script which will challenge the actor, I agree with another recommendation that said it would be a breeze to produce this wonderful play.
