Excerpts from Nicholl Fellowship readers' comments:

"High demonstration of craft, structure, and storytelling. A simple yet powerful story. Wonderful use of flashbacks. Clear voice, beginning, middle, and end. Characters grow and develop. Well crafted characters and a very polished script. Roles that serious actors would jump at the chance to play. You hurt with Marlene, you ache when she aches. Brings light to the terrible battered women's syndrome, which would spark discussion. Very well written." 

"This story has good structure. Structure in this story is very important because it allows the suspense to slowly build.  The script also does a great job at introducing the characters and the world. All seems normal at first. The dialogue is solid, creating complex characters that hint at their darker side. This requires patience with the read, as the reveals are careful planned out, and perfectly executed. Once I got past the first half of the script, I felt rewarded for my patience. There’s a lot of stuff going on here, and you could miss out if you’re not paying attention.

The tone is pitch-perfect. The suspense and intrigue will have you turn the page with anticipation. The intensity has a constant build throughout. The moment when Marlene (…) was so emotionally satisfying and I pumped my fist."

"This was an interesting idea for a story. The premise of the plot was unique enough to make us curious to see what would happen. There was a lot of mystery and suspense from one plot point to the next as the story unfolded. The approach to the genre was very good. We were riveted and weren't sure what was going to happen. There were some nice moments of magic. The meaning of the message at the end was cathartic."
