MICHELLE HOLMES certified reviewer July 01, 2023
I can't stop thinking about it. One of the best new plays I've ever seen. The acting was breathtaking, the direction brilliant, the production top-notch, and the writing as good or better than the best! There's one more show, on July 8, and you have no excuse for not seeing it if you can. It should be SRO!!... full review

Visually they achieved a great look in the most stripped down black box space. The acting was powerful, fusing cunning insights and vulnerability to lull the audience into a sense that they knew these people only to explode that comfort with shocking truths and bitter nostalgia.

Question asked, "what is your general impression of the show?" Honestly, there is nothing general about the artists of the show and the storyline has twists and turns.

This was honestly the best art-come-to-life I have ever seen on a stage. It was absolutely stunning. The acting, the writing, the way it flowed. The whole range of human emotions were woven together in a really beautiful and unique way. I cannot praise this enough. ... full review

This was one of the most profound and poignant pieces of art I've seen in Los Angeles and frankly, in my life. Beautiful words from Jiggs Burgess put into the skilled and masterful hands of actors like Craig Taggart and Shaw Jones with insightful direction by Spencer Frankeberger is a recipe for brilliance.... full review

It’s the only show I’ve seen but I can’t imagine the their being a better short play, top to bottom, beginning to end. Super story & writing and the acting by Craig Taggert and Shaw Jones is incredible. Congrats!... full review

This was a powerful struggle between two men, their vastly different insights into life, and the way they've learned to cope with the challenges they've faced. All is not what it seems in this piece.... full review
TOM AYERS certified reviewer June 12, 2023
Definitely must see. Yes it's incredibly emotional, it's written that way. It's called Wounded and it was named correctly. These amazing talented experienced actors are on fire and having a blast being these broken characters. ... full review
