What I liked

Any time a play, or any other work of art, can make one feel a strong emotion, as this play does, it reminds me of what great theatre can be.

What I didn't like

The only improvement I can come up with, is that it is so short! I would have loved to hear more from these two about how they are coping. However, leaving the audience wanting more? Hard to be too critical about that.

My overall impression

A poignant and emotional time in the lives of two very close friends becomes a reflection on our own life as we hear and experience some of their pain. The writing is very good, and the two young actors brought life experience seemingly beyond their years along with them as they take us through a journey that causes all of us watching to feel their insecurities about what is about to happen. I could feel the audience being moved almost to tears, as was I.
