"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. Brunstetter's words pierce the soul, and she makes the depths of the human experience profoundly relatable...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
