What I liked

First and foremost, I love the concept. Ty’s writing is clever and sharp and there is a great deal of depth to it as well.
His characterizations are funny, poignant and at times make you cringe, or feel sad but you’re not sure why, or you feel guilty for laughing at them – but ultimately, I wanted to see them each…. I don’t know… end up “okay?” Ty shows us these stereotypes and then proceeds to give them unexpected layers and depth, and it is beautiful to behold.

What I didn't like

I would like to see this done with cleaner direction. There is so much back-and-forth between the characters that it can become challenging to follow the story.
With a little editing, and less “quick change”, it would be easier to keep up.
And Ty – if you stumble on a word, roll with it without breaking character – we are with you 100%!

My overall impression

A clever deconstruction of labels and stereotypes enacted by the extremely talented Ty Pickett.
