Difference or defect? Disability or not? An intimate play about a mother and daughter. Maybe what's right or wrong isn't what's important: it's what this young woman identifies as and what she wants from life. Any theatre who's producing a short festival on disability should check out this play."
Succinct and thoughtful.
"This ten-minute two-hander handles the topic of being different succinctly and thoughtfully. Defective / disabled? Self-acceptance and enlightenment are covered in such a way as to make this universal."
