    A lovely and delicate play with lots of fantastic lines and a perfect - and perfectly hopeful - ending.

    I love this... it's an incredibly theatrical exploration of some incredibly important ideas.
  • it's not a trip it's a journey

    This play is so so good. It takes advantage of the conventions that make the road trip genre so enjoyable, but also serves as a reappraisal of that genre, and an examination of who really feels entitled to move freely around the country. It's very funny, but also has a lot of serious things to say, and these characters feel real and familiar but consistently surprising.

    A lovely, gentle, delicate play about what it means to see one another - and to see ourselves.
  • Those Days Are Over
    22 Jul. 2020
    This is a lovely play (and full of lovely roles for women in their forties and fifties!). It manages to be both a family drama, full of sympathetic characters and carefully-observed details, and an important reflection on contemporary gender roles. Audiences would love this piece, and would walk away with a lot to think about.

    I love this play, especially in this moment. It's so smart and so funny, and helps make the scope of the problem clear to the well-intentioned white people who might be reading or sitting in the audience.

    Vince Gatton's plays are always funny, empathetic, and very moving, and this is another in that vein. A highly theatrical exploration of what it means to be good, filled with specific and memorable characters.

    So smart. So funny. So good.

    Beautiful and scary short play about these times... or any times.
