The writing and performances in this show are outstanding. One of the best plays I've seen at the HFF in a long time. I was engaged in the story the whole time and the acting from all three performers was top notch. This was a last-minute decision to attend, as we had some time to kill between shows. So we walked up and bought tickets. What a delightful surprise. Go see it. You won't be disappointed. ... full review

Acid Wash Love delves into relationships between men and women in a post-Me Too dating culture and poses the question many young people ask themselves: is seduction "okay" anymore? Stevens writes an excellent depiction of a modern American dude who "respects women" out of fear rather than morality. I loved the ideas that Stevens discusses and his spot on analysis of intimacy, or lack thereof, in the modern age. The timing and pacing of the script are excellent, and the actors stay engaged not only with each other but with the audience as well. Also, the free cookies are delicious. ... full review

Chambers Stevens has done it again with this amazing story that would fit perfectly into the fall line-up of The CW. Perfectly directed by Victoria Hoffman, this hilarious three-hander features the amazing talents of future Oscar winner Maitlyn Pezzo, along with Laurent Sayer and Bethany Nava. It is a true ensemble piece, as the talents of all three were needed to pull it off... full review

I really did not know what to expect with Acid Wash Love. As we entered the theater we were handed a small box and told not to open. What? The suspense!! Three actors performed flawlessly as their stories were woven together. The story line was relatable and very well done! Wish I could see AWL again!!... full review

This show has such a refreshing take in a post-Metoo movement world. It's funny, it's cheeky, it's REAL! So many moments had me thinking back to my time as a freshman in college. Stevens has written a fantastic play that really turns stereotypes on their head and challenges our conceptions. This play is personal, so many times you feel like a fly on the wall intruding on the lives of these three individuals. ... full review
