    Sarah tells an important story of abuse and family in this play. It weaves between past and present setting up the intense relationship between the Cate and her family's denial. This play has a lot packed into 50 minutes, I love to see it longer and even more fleshed out. This family has a specific voice in our time right now in light of the "me too" era and should grace the stages of those who want to dive into this problem!

    Clever little play that I could totally see in a Halloween themed festival. Really funny for a young comic actor. There is also potential for this play to sink into the deeper meanings of how teens treat/mistreat their parents.

    A sad reminder about the truths of bullying and how it can get ingrained in a child's imagination. I also love the clever use of handwriting in this piece.

    Oooh! What an intense look at how two people (in this case a man and a woman) see the same moment. This brought me back to days waiting alone at bus stops and the fear that that can bring up in a woman. Timely play in the #metoo era.

    Damn! This play is funny and a bit absurd, and it's that comic edge that allows the real message about how our lives have changed in the Trump-presidency era. How our words and public image may even mean less now that someone so cruel and vulgar can be POTUS. Deep under the internet speak and video fetishes in this play is a mother struggling to reach her son.

    This play is sharp and timely, and brings up a lot of questions about how we use language and what is P.C. in the days of our casual speak and word games. I'd be really curious to see this play on stage and hear reactions from audiences of all races as I believe it asks an important question.

    One of my favorite plays in the Boston Theatre Marathon this year! Jules is deprecating in her one-night stand reaction, and Peter is sweet and good, in the sort of way you'd hope a guy would be when you go home "that drunk" with him. The connection made in this short play between these two very contrasting people is lovely. Also, the Garfield tattoo is hilarious!

    Talk about a great play for a female lead who is unconventional, smart, and funny. You can feel the heart in this play, as much as if follows the story of a stand up comic who doesn't have the best relationship with her dad, it is really about the deep connection we have with our childhood memories and the desire to honor them. Also, there are some GREAT monologues!

    I was fortunate to see a production of this at Mosaic Theatre in DC, and was thoroughly impressed by the way Allyson handed the table turning reveals-- I never felt like I was manipulated, but instead I leaned forward into the excitement in the change in the story telling. Also, what a great way to do a 90 minute play but keep a solid 2 act structure.

    A powerful play about truth and forgiveness. Evan has written a strong ensemble of characters that could have easily been a collection of stereotypes, and instead they are fully fleshed human beings, and often with unexpected qualities. This play made me laugh and cry, and challenged the way I see forgiveness.
