    Fantastic show . I love love theater and have a high bar and have done a one woman show and this was stunning, moving and a show I won’t forget. Thank you .
    The brother’s story tender, sweet and haunting. The grandfather exercise so interesting.

    It was a beautiful show. I loved how she told the story in a beautiful way. She actually did accentuate on the life of the people instead of when their life ended tragically. Beautiful show
