    A quiet reflection on life, the mystery of death, and the ultimate place of love in the face of life's misfortunes and tragedies. Bringing past and present together, imagining fantastic scenes and recalling sobering histories, Burbano invites us to a conversation that is at once very personal and "slice-of-life" yet global in its implication and thought process. A meditative piece, this is one of those plays that you'll find yourself contemplating for longer than it took you to read the script. Ultimately, that's the mark of a great play. Read it and take it all in. A wonderful play.

    This lovely reflection utilizing the past's relationship to the present finds two scientists philosophizing on death's relationship to the living. The dialogue's progression is both lofty and grounded, mesmerizing and humbling. Burbano has a remarkable exchange here between two women at work.
