One of the best plays I've seen to date! I especially enjoyed the Asian actress who played Safia. She was so engaging! Deeply appreciate how this play focuses on the importance of communication and staying true to yourself which, throughout the play, provided so many great examples of empowerment through authentic expression.

We desepararely need a show like this on TV that explores the gender and sexuality spectrum, and gives attention to the trans narrative, the bisexual narrative and accurately represents polyamory in the online dating scene. This play gives visibility to teens who identify as lesbian and I think that’s so important. Most often we see the white male as gay but rarely do we see a young lesbian. ... full review

A really fun, charming show. With a likable cast, great zingers, some really nice conversations about relationships and a few cool twists along the way. It's a funny and sweet show that will definitely entertain anyone who has had to navigate dating: regardless of the generation they started dating in.... full review
