World Premiere

Produced by Magic Theatre

"Sensitively directed by Jessica Holt, the six actors carefully navigate the play’s ups and’s a brilliant, absorbing, utterly human play that doesn’t skirt the issues. This profound work of art is worth seeing."

-The Daily Journal

"Jessica Holt’s direction is perfectly in tune with each change in the emotional roller coaster ride that is playing on Magic’s three-sided stage."

" A finely nuanced production, in which even the scene changes are touching...poignant and heartbreaking"
