    What a brilliant combination of Shakespeare and The Princess Bride! The two work seamlessly together. Well done.

    For those of us old enough to remember this strange time to be alive, when the fear of both computers and the world shutting down at midnight as we fell forward into the dreaded 2000s, this play is highly nostalgic. With the end of the 90s already setting a disquieting tone, the characters themselves are taking a tremulous step forward in their respective lives, despite the uncertainty of what may or may not lie ahead after midnight.

    Samantha Oty has crafted a darkly comic, multi-layered time capsule that will leave a lasting impression on any audience.

    This is such an amazing and unconventional way to show the disconnect a person with gender dysphoria feels. Andrew Martineau has crafted a brilliant, laugh-out-loud comedy that has something for everyone. You will walk away from it not only entertained but more aware. Well done!

    What a breath of fresh air this play provides. Such a different portrayal of marriage and cisgender heteronormativity versus the transgender experience. Emma Goldman-Sherman has crafted a remarkable play that deserves to be produced.

    I am amazed by this short, grueling piece. Brian's confrontation with his father is so bitter and heartfelt. You really root for him,or for his dad to change his perspective by the end of the play. The end was surpring and completely satisfying. Highly recommended!
