    Wow. This all too timely play really caught me off guard. Carnes' witty dialogue and well-drawn female characters draw you in, but just when you think you know what this play is, it takes one unexpected turn and then another, with devastating results. Extremely well crafted.

    Imaginative, smart, funny, and touching, Capodicasa's gripping two-hander takes you on a wild journey that ultimately speaks to the small mysterious things that connect us all.

    This beautiful and moving play enthralled me from start to finish. A history piece that feels extremely fresh and urgent.

    This play is crowd-pleaser if ever there was one. I attended a reading that had the audience-- a very large crowd composed of people from all walks of life-- laughing so much they were wiping tears away and bursting into random applause. It's pure fun and a surefire slam-dunk for any theatre company looking to simply give their audience a good time.
  • Mate: The Untouchable Bobby Fischer

    Smart, fascinating, chilling-- this play grabbed my attention and didn't let go. The choice to explore Bobby Fischer though the lens of his relationships to the women in his life is a winning move. I would love to see a full production of this play.

    "Do you ever get nostalgic for something you never had?" This play had the audience rolling with laughter at a reading I saw. Such fun. A perfect comedic 4-hander for any 10-minute play festival.

    I attended a reading of this play in January 2018 that I find myself still thinking about a year later. This play is human, poetic, devastating, and hopeful. It's a small treasure.

    A beautiful and timely short play about moving beyond our initial judgements to see people as whole and complex human beings. Seid's writing glimmers with layered and poetic language.

    A history play that sparkles with humor, relevance and an array of fun and well-defined characters. Though the play is meticulously researched, Barrett keeps it light and accessible. I was delighted to spend time in this world and to learn about this fascinating slice of history.
