    I can't even begin to recommend this play enough. It feels like something you'd find in the middle of the woods and about twenty pages in you realize everything around you has gone silent. Bold, intense, haunting. One of the few plays to ever just burrow in my head and refuse to leave for days.

    Not only one of my favorite titles of a play in quite some time, but is overall heartbreakingly awesome. Fantastic piece that still resonates with me months after reading it.
