    Fascinating and powerful, and once you figure out what's going on, you're absolutely hooked. I love this play--so much is said in just a few short pages. As always, Burbano wields the pen with great power.

    Terrific two-hander--in just a few pages Burbano's characters, one of whom is famous, tell us so much, both by what they say and what they don't say, about their contrasting ideas of power and success. This play keeps unfolding after you stop reading it.

    Burbano's short play examines what it means to be in power as opposed to being empowered. It is a terrific fictional character study about the private life of one of the most recognized women in the world. Burbano trusts the audience to come to its own conclusions about the characters and their motivations.
