Terrific.

I expected great dialogue, and to enjoy myself, and I certainly did. I did not expect to be so f---ing thrilled. It is such a good play. The writing beguiles you, and pulls you in, then it kind of opens up and takes you pretty deep.
I really like this playwright’s work. Very well-produced. Entire cast was first-rate.

Relevant material. Great performance by Cothran.

I really enjoyed the story and twist at the end. Cothran has a great voice that I like to listen to. Had some funny moments amidst the intensity of the story.

Real street drama.

Solid performances deliver a first-rate drama of the streets with real characters and a message to ponder.
