Relevant, Great writing, Profound, Intelligent, Great acting

See it if You like one person monologue plays. Though there are 16 actors they each deliver a monologue that helps build a tapestry when completed.

Don't see it if You’re a misogynist. This is a stunning piece of work but it’s told from women’s point of view, which just seems like truth to me.

For a previous production

"Rarely–if ever– have I seen a cast of women this diverse who represent the entire swath of our country...I was pleasantly surprised by the scope and depth that the piece offers. It is more than just a #metoo play. It is more than just a feminist piece. It is more than just political. What it is is the product of a compassionate, rational human being who finally understands that we’re not serving ourselves as a society if we do not listen to one another."
