REVIEW

Two words can change everything, and the two words Joe – author Paul Smith’s hapless protagonist – uses in this heartbreaking script are two we all have to say at some point in our lives. And how they change everything for Joe and the antagonistic Josh is both devastating and hopeful. A beautiful two hander that builds in intensity to its surprising, but oh so right conclusion. ” – Doug DeVita – New Play Exchange
