What I liked

Talent and expertise exudes from the fingertips of these women. I was absolutely blown away. The writing was sharp, sometimes extremely humorous and other times so serious and real you find your breath starting to shorten. The play forces one to reflect on their own lives and their own longings as well as feel an intense form of gratitude for the people we love in our lives. I left the show with my friend and we couldn’t stop talking about it for hours after, I’ve never seen anything like it before. I loved the show this much, and all the way around that!

What I didn't like

Loved it

My overall impression

FANTASTIC. This show had me thinking about it hours later, trying to wrap my head around this beautiful and distopian universe these talented women created. Inspiring, thought-provoking and genuinely one of the best things I have ever seen.
