    Stevens really captures the beauty and terror in the concept of isolation. His use of language and silence is amazing to experience. I was lucky enough to see a reading of this at KCACTF Region 7 Festival 52. Stevens does a phenomenal job of incorporating science and theatre. Worth the read!

    This play is absolutely amazing. Each character is so distinct and full of life. A great play to read to see how monologues are structured and are able to tell quick and interesting stories. I love it!

    I have never been more in love with a play. The way Mesri leads you on a journey and uses language to tell multiple stories at once. Every bit of this play is gorgeous. Each character is so well fleshed out and goes on a full adventure. Some plays are great to listen to, some are great to read. This is both. Read this play

    A really cute and well-told story about what the younger generation can do about the changing climate. Great characters and phenomenal storytelling. Idaszak does good work with theatre for young audiences.

    Pitts did that. She can write some great stories. She creates a world of wonder and weakness with these stunning characters. I am infatuated with her use of language and love. Nothing is given easily in this script it is ripped out of the characters after days of suffering but goddamn this script is amazing

    I was lucky to see the reading of this at KCACTF 2018 and it is just phenomenal. Every moment, every monologue, each word is handpicked and I love it. It's heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time. Macke does a great job at creating a whole family dynamic with only 2 family members and some rando

    a great work by Eryn, she captures such a human feeling of hope and desperation to talk to those we can't reach in a short amount of time.

    I haven't screamed at a play in so long. This is it. This is art. This is important, this is funny and dramatic and just downright good. The dialogue, the characters, the story, all of it is brilliant. Everyone should read this and everyone should produce this.

    McVay captures the ups and downs of breakups and what they can do to us. Her use of language and perspective is absolutely amazing. This play is a roller coaster from start to finish with twists and turns in all the right directions

    Rushing takes you on a journey that I wasn't prepared for. So much history and information packed into only a couple of pages.
