    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.
  • For Daddy on Superbowl Sunday: a monologue

    "Ooooh," was my guttural response to this piece. It's short but poignant, and leaves a lot of choices up to the actor. If can go very very dark, or it can be as "every day" meanness many of us see from loved ones. Great little audition piece.

    Damn, this play is smart and funny with a kick of reality that bites. As a school teacher I can say this is something I face when talking to students about their futures and Asher really hits the nail on the head in voice and tone. I'd love to bring this into my student acting class!

    This play is beautifully haunting. It is dark and twisted but filled with the ache of loneliness that is highly relatable. This is one of those “uninvited visitor” plays that hooks you into a controversial family with its sharp dialogue, tension, and flecks of humor beneath the darkness.
  • Bark Park: life from both sides of the lead

    This play has tons of heart and humor. Anyone who has ever had a dog and wondered what they are thinking this play handles that question in a unique way. Also because this play shows both the owner and dog perspective it mirrors the humanity in each. In many ways it shows how strong (almost canine) instinct could change the course of events.

    This is a beautiful play that captures the modern family dealing with transgender and queer issues through the story of Vi and her parents. The scenes are compact and filled with dramatic tension/action, and each character is human, even when at their worst. David has done a fantastic job bringing us into the struggle of this family. I highly recommend this play.
