When she befriends Maribel Purdy, a fervent believer in the power of Jesus Christ to save her from the humiliations of high school, Laney embarks on a hilarious spiritual and sexual journey that challenges her mothers secular worldview and threatens to tear their fragile relationship apart. The work of a big accomplished writers voice...a gem of a discovery. -The New York Times Gorgeous almost beyond belief. -The London Times This is a wonderfully neat play, at once simple and complex, grappling with big issues - matters of faith, fantasy and the flesh - while keeping its sneakers firmly planted on the suburban topsoil of adolescent angst and domestic frictions. - The Daily Telegraph
