    Worth reading multiple times to grasp the many nuances of the interaction. This play does a lot to shine a spotlight on the many fleeting interactions we have every day and the inner struggles of those around us.

    I'm such a fan of Marcia Eppich-Harris's work! Whether she's writing something like this one minute piece or a full length historical drama, you can always count on her to deliver. Good job!

    A play that makes you double-think about what the strangers around you are going through, particularly on public transit. I was lucky to see a production during Fat Turtle Theatre Company's Quaranteeny Play Festival and found that its subtleties played well on a digital platform. Would enjoy seeing this in a more traditional production in the future!
