    I saw a reading of this play at the 2019 Valdez Last Frontier Theater Conference and I loved it so much. Completely entertaining, fresh, full of surprises, funny, and super smart and theatrical. And with two very awesome, complicated, dynamic lead roles for women. I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to immediately watch it again and I would LOVE to see it in a full production.

    I had the pleasure of watching a reading of this play at the 2019 Valdez Last Frontier Theater Conference. I found it to be a perfect short play-- the story-telling is elegant in its brevity, but the story reaches deep. I found delight in the play's humor and smart attention to detail and moved by the characters, their relationship, and their (and the playwright's) big hearts.

    I just watched a reading of this play at the 2019 Valdez Last Frontier Theater Conference and it totally blew me away. I love this play. It is one of the most exciting, thrilling, theatrical news plays I've seen or read in the past few years. It is incredibly active, full of amazing and delightfully impossible images, and rich with beautifully complicated, full, surprising characters. There is so much depth, expanse, imagination, and guts here. After the play was over, I wanted to immediately watch it again.

    I had the pleasure of seeing a reading of this play at the 2019 Inge Festival and was delighted by the play's freshness, active use of language, fun visuals, and lively story-telling. Diaz-Marcano's writing here is complex, musical, surprising, and alive. It is my hope that this play reaches more audiences.

    I LOVE this play so much. It has easily become one of my favorite plays of all time and I marvel at it, over and over, as I re-read it again.

    BONUS: I read this play with my "Introduction to Theater" students (out loud in class) and it is almost always their very favorite play as well.

    THANK YOU, Sarah DeLappe for this huge gift.

    I saw a reading of this play at the 2018 Midwest Dramatists Conference and there is so much that I enjoy about it. The play is sneaky smart, offering lots of excellent theatrical possibilities. The play is precise and specific while also generously open and delightfully absurd. Adams gives us a poignant in-between space in which to live with and care for some very memorable characters.

    I saw a reading of this play at the 2018 Midwest Dramatists Conference and enjoyed it so much! It's an excellent work of comedy-- clever, funny, delightfully wacky, and very smart theatrically. There is so much to enjoy about the play's premise, its characters, and the fun world that Higbee has created.

    I saw a reading of this play at the 2018 Midwest Dramatists Conference and was so impressed with Loewenstern's writing. There is so much that is happening, literally, all at once, as Loewenstern theatrically expands time, expanding the audience's vision and understanding of a moment. Within these expansions are haunting, exquisite images, expressing a highly memorable sense of place in motion. Really excellent work.
  • The Thought Doesn't Count

    I saw a reading of this play at the 2018 Midwest Dramatists Conference and was so impressed and moved by it. The play is painful, beautiful, funny, full of truth. Hageman creates living, breathing characters going through a crisis, artfully giving them both space and intimacy, and it just all felt very real. Really lovely work.
