This amazing show left me thinking 2 things “what do I long for in life” and “how do I respond to the longings that can’t be met”. These 2 extraordinary actors allow you to see into the life of people whose longing dwells in the deepest parts of them. The “pit” if you will. And how it affects their lives. If you get a chance please go see this show! You won’t regret it.... full review

This show is mesmerizing. Full of mystery and pathos. Beautifully executed by two seasoned performers who hold your attention so well. There was laughter and tears, sweeping back and forth organically between the poles. A very enjoyable and artful night at the theatre!... full review

My favorite thing about shows like these are having absolutely no idea what to expect. I don't even think I read a summary beforehand. What sucked me in immediately were the performances. Lindsay Beamish was the performer you heard first and her ability to completely submerge you into the universe they created was completely remarkable. I was hooked from the start. Both her and Vanessa were hilarious and the entire show felt like something they had been working on for their whole lives - you could tell it was personal and unique. ... full review
