This is a very different style of show, and it took some ambition to not go a more traditional route and simply present monologues. When the show opened, I was not quite sure what to expect, but by the end, I truly felt like I had come along on a journey with the cast.... full review

It takes a lot of courage to get on stage. It takes even more courage to tell a story about yourself that's true. ... full review

I'm always skeptical when it comes to unpublished plays- but I was completely blown away by this show. The true life stories that these actors so bravely share were incredibly touching (I teared up several times and laughed a lot too). It was a wonderful experience to get to hear what matters most to fourteen strangers and what/who has impacted their lives so greatly. It puts a lot into perspective for the audience member and reminds you that no matter what path a person has walked in this life, everyone has their struggles and battles, happiness and beauty. Though our stories may not be the same we can always relate on those grounds. It truly was a wonderful show. ... full review
