    An AWESOME Macbeth adaptation that is hilarious, terrifying, and poignant as it both illustrates the original story for me in a brand-new way, and tells an entirely new and thrilling story. And as someone who attended an elite magnet school on the east coast, the fierce competition among these teenagers is wildly familiar to me! I would love to see both the dynamic characters and the daring stage magic in this play come to life.

    Blisteringly funny satire combined with deep dark emotionality, yearning and bloodlust.

    beth goes to THAT place without any hesitation or qualms about difficulty or sensibilities and earns every precious second of raw, unfiltered emotions. This was so fun (and scary and terrifying!) to read, and even better because it's rooted in real life. Alex Lin does a wonderful job of capturing the characters on the page, but also leaving the reader with a strange mix of foreboding hope by the end. Can't wait to see/hear this staged!
