    A lovely little love story about two girlfriends reuniting after one of them has tried to go the straight route and found it didn't work. Watch how Minigan surely but patiently shifts the change in their relationship and uses the motif of the two lesbian swans as a kind of catalyst. And if you have any doubts about the depths of Violet's devotion to Ellie, check how far Haverhill is from Boston on a map.

    Subtle in its execution but grand in its emotional rewards, Minigan write a love story that explore the little details and give us a conclusion that speaks volume. Read, read, read!

    This play has such a great closer, you gotta read it just to get there! Go on, read it! Cause this is one of those wonderful 10 minute plays that you end up loving so much, it'll make you tear up a week from now. LOVE! LESBIANS! SWANS! what more could you want? A really great ending!
