WOOOOOOOOFFFF! This one definitely had me locked in. It's a real blend of moments & situations that range from dark, to funny, to awkward, to crushing. A really sharp & poignant reminder that every choice has a consequence, and the juice isn't always worth the squeeze. Fantastic writing, and the cast absolutely understood the assignment -- and aced it. Go and check this one out!... full review

So well written. Both the writer and performers were able to really engage us in the story. The direction added to the audience being drawn into the story and rooting for the two women.... full review

Some really talented actors on stage who deserve better material. Though I will say that the script is relatively relatable if you've been cheated on by your partner and someone you considered an ally. Even more on the nose, someone who's a colleague.... full review

Loved Erin McShanes writing. Loved the flow of the actors utilizing a small space. The story was a great twist. Atiny bit of Virginia Wolfe. Utilizing today’s tech onnthe story was genius. A whodunnit mixed with betrayal. Lost love and found self respect. A must see ! ... full review

SEAN CARROLL certified reviewer June 15, 2024
As someone who has seen this play workshopped while in its earlier stages, it was a joy to see it come to life in full at The Broadwater. Wonderful use of lighting. Stellar acting from everyone, as well as stellar writing. All and all incredibly well-executed.... full review

ROBERT BAILEY certified reviewer June 13, 2024
A multi-scene one-act that gets right to the dramatic point and nails the thorny situation with incisive dialogue, humor and passion. Effectively performed and presented in a small space that the cast and director are able to dominate. The play demonstrates the wages of male wishy-washiness with clarity and a contemporary sensibility.... full review
