    Jami Brandli is #playwrightgoals. This play is so funny and then punches you in the gut hard. If you have ever dealt with Alzheimer's in any personal way prepare to cry and laugh a lot. Love this family play and hope all you fools produce it soon

    Aja Houston doesn't write four people in a living room talking about "issues" She is a world builder. She writes plays that are meant for the stage. This play is a wonderful metaphor. It also gets to the core of the human condition while saying so much about our present. I hope more plays like this get done more often! Read and produce this play please!

    A wonderful two hander that is much more a story about friendship than it is an "issue play."It tackles friendship in the age of social media with humor and heart. I love this play and it has one of the most beautiful quiet scenes in theatre. Think this play should be done all over the country.

    What can I say: this play both moved me to tears and also made me so jealous of Jennifer's talent. There are few playwrights alive who write with such poetry and ease and grace. I mean the lap pool monologue alone should be taught in playwriting courses all around the world. This is a beautiful and honest play about relationships that offers way more insight than Love Letters. This is human condition stuff here. I love this piece and hope to see it on many stages around the country soon.

    This is such a wonderful piece. It starts off very slice of life in a small town in Texas and then is overtaken by magic. A story about how we need community and something to believe in and the power of all that. I hope to see this play and it's magic on a stage soon!

    A wonderful character study about how everyday citizens can vilify and hold up our leaders. This play is filled with tension and suspense and doesn't let up until the very end. It also takes a piece of well known American history and forces you to look at it in a completely different way. At the very end you can't help but look at your own beliefs and how you unfairly idolize and vilify the leaders of our time.

    A deeply original and beautiful pieces of theatre. This play creates a brand new world and has it's own voice and is like nothing I have ever read before. This play only belongs on a stage and takes on a larger global issue through metaphor, magic, and tragedy. And somehow it is also cathartically funny. What a beautiful interpretation of a true story.

    This play is hilarious and then suddenly you are crying. The satire is tremendous and the story is really fresh and surprising. This is also a great play for actors. This is greek theatre, with a much needed injection of feminism. Highly recommend this play.

    Sometimes you read a play and are shocked to find out that it hasn't been produced. This play is an amazing family history play that somehow avoids cliches and says something new about mental illness and a culture's collective trauma. I love this play and this voice, I hope it gets it's deserved production soon.

    A wonderful one man show about growing up in the Lower East Side in New York. Such a powerful story and Juan Villa is excellent in the show. Hope this play keeps getting seen all over the country
