    I was fortunate to see this play in a workshop production at Carnegie Mellon. With a slam dunk opening scene, the play continues on a visually and emotionally gripping journey. The character of Eliza is especially compelling and the philosophical quandaries of the Luddite movement make for fascinating commentary on today's tech-addicted society. A challenging treat for theatre artists and audience members alike!

    The careful attention to detail Henry employs in this play is what makes it so tense and powerful. From the mens' tucked in polos to the sound of the bouncing ball, this play immerses you in a world familiar, suffocating, and uniquely theatrical.

    The young woman at the center of this story goes on a journey that is both painfully familiar and refreshingly hopeful. This is a beautiful, funny, delicate, play that everyone should read and see!

    I had the pleasure of seeing this play in a reading at KCACTF 2017. It has two powerhouse roles for young women, exciting twists and reveals, and an original setting. A truly meaty drama for teen actors to sink their teeth into!

    This is a funny and expertly constructed one act with an interesting conflict and a big warm heart. Jess Honovich writes teenagers in a sensitive, nuanced way that avoids stereotype and embraces humor and compassion. Do this play! Now! You!

    This is a funny and moving coming of age play about deciding what kind of person you want to be. It has a solid structure that allows for so much great physical action to happen on stage. With three fantastic roles for young women and one set, this is play is a producer's dream. However, more importantly, it tells a story that audiences will love hearing and won't be able to stop thinking about.

    I had the joy of seeing this play in a staged reading at KCACTF. It is a beautiful, imaginative story, with a ton of heart, about the joys and struggles of motherhood. It has amazing roles for women and actors of color, and would be a treat for a designer as well! Give it a read!

    With a title like that, how can you not want to read this play? Amy has created a fascinating futuristic world full of visual (and auditory) surprises and some truly great comedic moments. I especially love the bro-tastic take on the historical figures of Lewis and Clark. A really unique theatrical experience!

    It's impossible to talk about this play without using food-related descriptors! Sweet, juicy, and incredibly satisfying!

    This is a beautiful and uplifting story written with rich and surprising language that is a real treat to hear spoken aloud. This unique laundry-filled purgatory is populated with three strong, funny, emotionally complex women with stories and voices that make you lean in in your seat!
