Reviews from Past Producers

An award winning one act.

R is the only letter in a sea of numbers. Always picked last for kickball, never part of the 'in' crowd, never gets the girl. What is a letter to do to get through life? An avant-garde look at the price of popularity.

This play is part of The Art of Rejection: Two One Act Plays, a collection of 2 plays
