Winner of over a dozen festivals, including the 2006 Strawberry One-Act Festival (New York premiere). Fin and Euba inhabit a suffocating world. Big dreams, small town prospects. As is their ritual, they sit out on the porch this late Autumn night, watching the cars go by... drinking, bitching, and planning their escape. A great choice for high school and college productions!
- WINNER! Strawberry One-Act Festival, 2006
"I watch the first in this night of four one-acts nervously, waiting for this play to slap me in the face with yet another farcical representation of Southern culture. Only the slap never comes. Instead, I bear witness to one of the warmest, most sincere, and unapologetically “Southern” plays that I have ever seen. The two women in this particular one-act, titled Fin & Euba, remind me so much of myself that my eyes well up. Both Fin and Euba are preoccupied with escaping their current situation; they feel stuck working factory jobs all the while dreaming of something bigger. They are Southern, yes, and the regional idioms they use garner quite a few audience laughs, but they are not defined one-dimensionally by where they’re from. That is, their culture does not overshadow their character." - Meghan McLeroy, "The South the Theatre Forgot," HOWLROUND
