Intelligent writing, topical subjects, wit, sensitivity and charm make these short plays within a play a wonderful choice. ... full review

I thought that the show was incredibly delightful, and demonstrated the range of "stories" and "records" in what they mean to different people. Each play was paced really well so there was a lot to think about and appreciate, but they didn't overstay their welcome. It was so good!... full review

I have done administrative work all of my life, so this play intrigued me from the start. The fact that they could present three complete plays in only 30 minutes was a major coup, and all three stories were truly relatable. Hats off to Off the Page Productions, which has presented these three amazing stories.... full review

Snow stood out to me as Smart & Funny with a well designed payoff derived from unique pacing. Everything I love about what Fringe Fest stands for Dear Diary also took a simple concept and did a great job of evolving it over and over to keep things fresh and intriguing. ... full review

I loved this show! Three different stories, three different performances all tied together through paper! Really makes you stop and consider how important our words are, and the lasting effects they have. I particularly loved Snow. The actors were so natural. It was as if we walked in on their day at work. They had a very natural banter about them, and the coffee bit was hilarious. There was a effortless energy between the two actors, like there was this really funny build to the climax- but I don’t want to give too much away. I also just had no idea that this was even going on in our administration! Overall- the acting was solid the stories were intriguing and I throughly enjoyed myself!... full review

I really enjoyed the plays. Helen Burak is such a treasure. Her play tapped into raw emotion and conveyed the conflict of confronting her younger self with truth and authenticity. ... full review
