REVIEWS

“Another fun piece from Jeff Dunne. I love his writing. It’s fast, witty and he comes up with some truly absurd premises. Like this one. And I mean that in the best possible way.” (John Busser, New Play Exchange, 2019)

“Dunne crafts an adorably ridiculous piece.” (Amanda Gunther, Theatre Bloom, 2018)
