Quotes & Highlights

“Delicately satisfying…[Ms. Brunstetter] writes fresh, unfussy dialogue and characters who earn their laughs and emotional moments by honest means.” —The New York Times 
“Bekah Brunstetter’s powerful new play marries the humor and sadness of grief. Her multidimensional characters’ pain radiated through my veins, and at the end, I just wanted to feel it all over again. Critic’s Pick.”  —_Backstage _


Tickets to the August 5th show include a post-performance talk-back with playwright Bekah Brunstetter.
