Totally, one of the best new plays to hit the ground running. Don't be surprised to see this play moving to larger markets. Do take the opportunity to see it while it's "Atlanta's own". The play's ending is a shocker!

“It’s rare that I read a script that I simply can’t put down, but that is exactly what happened when I read Carapace,” director Judith Ivey said in a statement. “In addition to being a thrilling ride, it raises beautiful questions about parenting and the connections we make — and fail to make — at the times we need help the most.”
