I love this play the way you love a person. It is so filled with soul and depth and wonder and everything human that I think of it as having a beating heart and a thinking mind. I played Emily Webb in high school and ever since I find myself missing her story and the poetry of her words. Wilder writes these lives beautifully and completely. Read it and you will likely feel connected to it.

— Sarah G.
