I don't often read plays, but my best friend told me she's taking part in this one, and as she lives in NZ so I can't go see her perform, I thought I'd read the play so I'd at least know what she was talking about. It's almost a Dean Koontz type story. Pretty good for reading, but I'm not too sure how it'd work on a stage.
