Clocking in at 25 minutes, Thumb Wars is a brief, pointed critique on human connection in the iPhone age.

This short but sweet commentary on modern dating was a treat. The show I went to experienced technical difficulties at the critical juncture but the actors played on, turning a possible shipwreck into something to be admired. Sean Boring wrote a tight, moving exploration commenting on that although things can change we all share the same insecurities as our parents and their parents before them. How we all act out our intentions is where the meat is and Sean has created four distinct characters that we can all identify in some way. Can't wait to see what is on deck for this talented writer. PS- he also got a grammar/spelling joke in there which I enjoy and your sure to as well.... full review
