Thought-provoking, Relevant, Funny, Scientific, Refreshing

See it if Scientists’ relationships are stressed when flaws emerge in their work. Well written & acted. Humorous romantic subplot with a wall st guy

Don't see it if You are not interested in science & academic research. A few liberties are taken to add to the conflicts. Bare bones production.

BOAST: Best of Astoria
February 11th, 2019

“A story particularly relevant to today’s political climate...The intimacy of the setting allows the audience to completely immerse themselves in the story of two female graduate students...Both characters push personal and professional boundaries...I found the story both relatable and realistic in its approach to scientific research and the pitfalls of long-term data collection...Any play that leaves you talking, thinking and discussing for days afterwards is...one worth pursuing.”
