In Birthday, an anxious young woman slips away from a unwelcoming birthday party in a bar only to discover a stranger sitting in the other room. Confiding old secrets and past mistakes as the party rages nearby, they find they may have a chance to forgive themselves and each other.
"Birthday is a romantic comedy, sort of; it's a lovely, sweet play of connection and camaraderie. Skillman picks up details of the trappings of our lives and makes them sing resonantly. " - NYTheatre.com
"Skillman creates a short masterpiece where the running theme is that it is never too late to follow your dreams." - Fringe Review
"As Birthday deftly shows, New York is definitely a place where one can find the urge to scream out one's life to total strangers out of sadness and desperation...it's also a town where sometimes you can find someone who'll listen." -- James Comtois, JameSpeak.com
