    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.
  • Shakespeare's Skull

    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
    5 Feb. 2019
    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.
  • Florence Fane in San Francisco

    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.
