"Great material to work with, leaving room for creativity while at the same time establishing a solid framework for the performance. The material led the cast to reach deep within to bring out the characters."
By Neal Chambliss - Director - Alexander High School
"This play was well received in our community and we have received nothing but positive comments. We took the play to our one act competition and received three first place rankings from the judges. This play allows each of the characters to be themselves and embody that character. This play does allow for a variety of ways to perform this play without black outs and losing the momentum one establishes in the telling of the story. A very moving production! Twelve of the sixteen characters received outstanding performer awards at regional competition and off to state we go for even more awards!"
