    The play keeps you on your toes. Don’t second guess it. Accept all at face value and let it bring you through twists and turns and hurdles. Honest, surprising, and compassionate. People can be broken. It doesn’t make them bad. Simple to stage, loaded with surprises for the audience and complex roles for the actors.

    Not-so-simple and all the more elegant for it. You think you know, and then another secret is revealed. Not just another high school play, not just another teacher, not just another student. Hilarious and painful in equal measures. Easy to stage, easy to cast, produce this piece!

    This one act went to some really unexpected places and I loved it for that. Great dialogue and really fascinating characters.
