Wow! I expected a good evening, but this was so much better even than my expectations. Really funny in parts, really touching in other parts. Brian is just masterful at telling his story. Obviously highly recommended.

Honest, intimate portrayal of Copeland's struggle with depression. I hope his play does inspire others to reach out for help when feeling suicidal, as he states his "agenda" in this piece to be.

Great show and proof that waiting periods are absolutely necessary.
