"Raw, shockingly-brutally-unflinchingly honest and passionate and loving and surprisingly warm and kind... [the play] refuses sentimentality and the overdone, emotional hand-wringing of so many works dealing with serious subject matters. It left me thinking about it long after..." --Juli Brooks Settlemire
"... I was expecting it to be about the inner thoughts of the one who suicides but... it is really about those left behind. It provides a controlled space for the friend to express her anger at the woman who is repeatedly attempting, and the fantasy she could stop her, and the forever deep urge to hold her, comfort her still."-- Patricia Morgne Cramer, Associate Professor English, Univ. of Connecticut.
Janiya, a young woman is in the hospital on a mandatory suicide watch after her third attempt. She is visited by her ex-girlfriend Cil. As they both struggle with the aftermath of the attempt, the two women arrive at a dynamic that might be a game-changer.
