This was such a smart and well-written show, with great dialogue and a few terrific twists. It was seriously entertaining -- and original, too.

Nancy Youngblut was brilliant in a difficult role, and Jennifer Lee Laks was great, playing a social worker. ... full review

I thoroughy enjoyed the poignant, funny, authentic portrayal of 2 people. I felt as though I were witnessing an actual event between individuals who were struggling with the life they were living. The actors are amazing. The writer/director produced a play that stays with you long after the curtains close.... full review
ANNE JOHNSTONBROWN certified reviewer June 18, 2017
Beautifully written and very well acted! The characters were uniquely relatable, and I loved the surprise ending. Considering it's a sad theme - homelessness - there's a "feel-good" resolution, which leaves us with hope at the end.... full review
