A tragic comedy about addiction, recovery, and ego.
In a world where socks talk, many of these talking socks have substance abuse problems. In this world where socks talk, some of the many addicted socks go to 12-step meetings and try to be sober socks. This is the world in which Sharing like Shakespeare takes place.

What a great play/audiobook! Anyone who is in a 12-step program or has been to meetings before will recognize the character archetypes and get a laugh from "Sharing Like Shakespeare".
It's a quick read/listen and definitely pokes good-natured fun at the funny aspects of recovery, while also imparting Romeo's serious cautionary tale about the trap of being so "recovered" that he can't share where he's at.
I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I thought the ending was a little abrupt and I wanted more closure or something. Overall, totally a great little play! I would love to see it performed with actual sock puppets, maybe as the Friday night entertainment at a convention! (Hint to any convention committee members who might be reading this review)
