The Reviews are fantastic:
"Some of the best laughs come from the conflict between Marsha Morgan as Dottie, Margie's landlord and sometimes friend and babysitter, and Laura House as Jean, Margie's longtime friend who always has her back. Both women kill it, not only with their lines but also with how they bring their characters to life with little actions on stage." --NoHo Arts
"The entire acting team is top drawer"
" I loved this production. Simply staged, touchingly performed and achingly real. Christine Dunford has taken what could well become a classic of the American stage and a group of truly astonishing actors and produced something profound, heartbreaking and beautiful."
"All in all this is as close as it gets to a true must see show." - EXAMINER
Exciting! My script "How to Hate Yourself" landed on the prestigious We For She WriteHer list!
