    A haunting play about grief, loneliness, and the pieces of ourselves we can never forgot not matter how hard we might want. The language is precise without feeling forced. Foglia does a terrific job with location, making us feel on edge, and yet caring deeply for these characters. A great play about family and loss.

    I saw a workshop production of this play a few years ago, and I still think about it. This poignant play closely examines the relationship of different women, both American and immigrants, struggling to make their way in the world and searching for belonging, love, and compassion. Quirky, beautiful, and strange, I look forward to seeing this play's future!

    I absolutely adore this play. Wildly absurd, hilarious, and sophisticated, this play is a radical exploration of the people, myths, tales, and legends that have defined and shaped America since from its birth. Incredibly imaginative, the play asks big questions about identity and ownership and how truth is shaped by story-telling. Can't wait to see this produced!

    A deeply funny, satirical and occasionally melancholy look at a group of friends who have known each for ages and know just how to push each others buttons as they slowly come to realize just how much they have grown up and possibly grown apart. The dialogue is zippy and witty with a number of great one liners that had me chuckling out loud. Highly enjoyable!

    This is a beautiful and hilarious play about friendship, life, real estate, annoying little brothers, and death. The story is deeply moving without ever falling into cliche or sentimentality with a cast of enjoyable characters that are well-crafted and complex. It's highly theatrical and a ton of fun with an ending that packs a whooper of an emotional punch.

    I love this play. Smart, well-written with compelling, engaging characters all just trying to make sense of the world. I would love to see a production of this play someday!
