What I liked

The play moves well, I liked the use of jackets to show different time frames on a limited stage.

What I didn't like

Overall, I thought the pacing was excellent. Given the time frame, the ending brought to light how we need to communicate, but I was feeling the need for more. What happens to Molly?

My overall impression

“Strong can mean so many things in this play. Physical strength in Tiffany as evidenced by her many trips to the gym. Strength of relationships between the two characters and finally strength in the face of adversity, in this case an illness. The are a few clues to where the play is headed in the dialogue moving up to the event that proves how strong, all of the aboved mentioned things are: friendship, personal grit and the required strength a person needs in the face of loss of control of a situation. The play is well written, well acted and the ending was short but for a one hour play it was sufficient. The most hard hitting part of the play is how quickly the “we will fight this together” gets tossed by the wayside when one realizes, you may need more strength than you bargained. Go see it!"
