    It's taken me a while to write a recommendation for this play because every time I think about it, I think about something new that resonates with me in an incredible and different way. Bruce's lyrical genius really shines through and each character is perfectly crafted. This is one of those rare plays where it's just as rewarding to listen to as it is to watch which makes it stands out as we move into a digital/aural era of theatre.
  • Why Are You Like This? (The Audience Services Play)

    I love this play and cannot wait to see it on stage once that's possible. All of the characters are immediately recognizable and the humor throughout the play underscroes some incredibly deep character moments. I truly cannot recommend this play enough.

    This is the kind of play that leaves you a little shaken, that I'm sure will stay with me days after I've read it. As always, the language is incredible and the characters are immediately recognizable and real and heartfelt. Beautiful, darkly magical, and filled with rage and pain constantly mixed together weaving a gorgeous tapestry of what it means to be alive and broken and how to find yourself again.

    This play holds an incredible truth about existence while somehow being so funny...and so not. I love how this play gets right to the issue of what it means to be "fit" and challenges the reader/audience to examine their own relationship with "fitness" and offers a thorough dissection of what that even means. I love this play! A perfect snapshot of our current hilarious problematic reality.

    This play has so much power packed into it. I love the flexibility and honesty of the piece. I've read it three times and keep coming back to it. I need to see this produced all over the country.

    "If there was a good option, we wouldn't be doing this." I love this play and how darkly playful it is. I laughed at times I felt that I shouldn't and then it suddenly struck me how close we are to this being our constant reality. A truly wonderful new play that needs to get produced ASAP.

    I am in love with this play. The language of this play lifts up the victims of Pulse in such a gorgeous and incredible way. I was struck by the humanity of the piece and even a month later still come back to it. This is the kind of play that sticks to you and becomes a piece of you forever.

    I am in love with this play! What a heartbreaking and beautiful story about grief and loss. Darcy's imagery and poetic language really make this play a must-read. I'd love to see it someday. (Also amazing title. It's what immediately drew me to this play)

    Whoa. This play has so many surprises in it, none of which seem out of the world of the play. What a fun dark comedy!

    I love this play! It's filled with surprises, realistically written, and every moment seems so organic. I also love the flexibility of the ending, how it could go either way. Makes me wish I could direct it.
